Director, Upward Bound - Polk
I am originally from Trinidad & Tobago, W.I. and grew up in Brooklyn, New York. I
joined the US Air Force upon graduation from high school. I have a BS in Computer
Information Systems from Saint Leo University, a Masters in TESOL from Kennesaw State
University and Currently working on a Doctorates in Administration and Leadership
from Walden University.
I chose to work for Upward Bound because I believe in the fundamentals of the program.
I have a love for learning and believe in young minds and want all youth to succeed.
Anything I can do to guide youth toward becoming the best person they can be and exceeding: I
am fully committed.
I believe that "All it takes is just one person to believe."
My favorite part of the program is interacting with the students, helping them grow
both academically and personally and of course, learning about them, their life goals, their
diverse backgrounds and thinking.
