2020 was a challenging year because of the pandemic. Schools could not run in-person classes, and many students had to stay at home. Kids in under-resourced areas were particularly impacted, with many not graduating from high school due to a lack of resources and support. I wanted to apply my knowledge and skills to solve real-world issues. This fueled my passion to fight education inequality in the humanities, arts, social sciences, and technology (HASST).
