If you could have dinner with 1 person who you regard as a leader, who would it be and why?

Khiara Bridges, author of Reproducing Race, an ethnography that has helped to further expose physician racism and classism in America, because I want to meet the person whose work has made me increasingly confident I want to ultimately go into medicine.

If you could create your own social enterprise, what would it be and why?

I would help to facilitate refugee owned and run businesses across America because I feel the refugee community has a diverse set of assets that often go overlooked.

Host Site Overview

UP Education Network is a nonprofit whose mission is to rapidly transform chronically underperforming district schools into extraordinary schools that sustain high achievement over time.

Host Site Project

Becca will help enhance programs by building the roll-out and implementation of UP Education’s new teacher certification process which ensures all of UP’s first-year teachers, guidance counselors and other professional school staff are meeting state standards. This will help the organization’s goals of developing talent to transform underperfoming schools and positively impact the lives of students.
