“My experience in the Surge Fellowship has put an imperative on my commitment to excellence and has deepened my commitment to authentic leadership. Through the Surge Fellowship I have learned to channel my passion to maximize impact – and that heart skills are just as important as hard skills. I have learned that my lived experience is a valuable asset in this work for social justice — and that because I am not alone in this movement, I am powerful beyond measure. The Surge Fellowship has changed my life.”
