to a new beginning

“To see a world in a grain of sand and heaven in a wild flower, hold infinity in the palms of your hand and eternity in an hour.” -William Blake

They say life has an unusual way of coming full circle, yet my path has been mystically oblong with throws of hard fought lessons and humbling experiences. However, through it all, what has most grounded me is the ability to constantly see light in a young person’s eyes. A twinkle here or there amid the tumults of life, and, in those quiet a-ha moments, I feel at ease knowing that I have served others in their pursuit of happiness.

I am rejuvenating my efforts to create a blog for my start-up nonprofit “Arrow.” I chose the moniker of an arrow for its simplicity of life constantly pulling me in new directions, sometimes backwards, sometimes forwards- but never towards the same space. With Arrow, my mission is to¬†increase college access and attainment for all students regardless of race, ethnicity, or creed.

As a result, this blog will have several foci:  educational pedagogy, college tips and updates, and minor infusions of lifestyle pieces as I catalog my journey.

Thank you for joining me on my adventure!
