My work with Encinal involves developing cultural spaces and leadership opportunities as the Advisor to the Black Student Union and the newly formed Muslim Student Association and Onaji Student Language Partnership. I also coordinate the Summer Matters program working in conjunction with administrators and local businesses to offer summer internships for low income and/or underrepresented students.
Additionally I provide academic counseling as a member of the Advisory team.
My teaching/educational philosophy is to simply hold a mirror up to students. When we see that we are able to do what we thought we were not smart enough or hard working enough to do, whether that be understanding a concept or writing an essay, we see ourselves. The opportunity to see your worth is the path to the future.
