InfoGrowing up in Topeka, Kansas, I was raised in a large extended family of people who risked their lives by speaking up for what was right. Surrounded by social workers, nurses, law enforcement officers, teachers, and relatives who proudly served in the Armed Forces, my family instilled in me a love of learning and the spirit of public service.

I experienced racism and discrimination in the classroom, but thanks to my own resilience, I persisted.
