Creating equity within education resources across communities.

Project: My Puksta Project for the upcoming academic year will concentrate on equity within education resources across communities.

Inspiration: My involvement with a range of programs that bring together people from around the globe (like the Youth Awards Leadership Camp, Student Board of Education, Youth for National Change, etc.) and being able to ask others about their perspectives with their education systems, listening to injustices that come with our education systems, inspired me to choose my Puksta Project.

Future Plans for Project: I hope to help individuals reach personal aspirations through having more access to educational resources, whether it be through technology, financial aid, making opportunities more evident, etc.
