With that same spirit she has received her PhD in Educational Leadership and Management; providing technical training to special education and diversity equity and inclusion leaders. She has also created her own platform powerful"Policy & Fashion" to share career and fashion advice to women.
"I believe education is one of the most important factors that can change life outcomes for people."
