I love getting to meet and learn from innovators from all walks of life. When people from diverse backgrounds — geographically, culturally, ethnically or professionally — come together to address social challenges, the results are awe-inspiring.

That’s what I love most about our AT&T Aspire Accelerator. We believe we found the most promising entrepreneurs from all over the country, with varied backgrounds, who offer solutions to problems they’ve personally seen or experienced in education.

For most of the last century, the United States led the world in educational attainment and the economic and social mobility of its people.

A: My first job was as a teacher. I think most teachers have a passion for giving back. I am no exception. Clearly, that passion influenced my decision to take on the role of AT&T Aspire Mentoring Academy in Europe, the Middle East, and Asia (EMEA) Regional Champion.
