I have always had a passion for working with young people. The work that I do with my students has allowed me to take my youth development work to the next level by teaching through a social justice lens. Many students lack the space to critically think and explore different dimensions of a concept. Through Step, my students have gained the historical context of the craft. It’s not just movement; it’s movement with meaning. Through academic advising, my students have gained the confidence to own their education. They have the right to succeed in their courses, the right to have their voices heard in the classroom, and the absolute right to determine what shapes their growth and education. I tell young people to prepare themselves as best as they can for a world that grows more challenging every day, to get the best education they can and couple that with real-life experiences in social justice.
