Nina Smith

“Being part of the Surge Institute would help me to become more confident in my leadership skills and more willing to take on challenges such as seeking out larger-scale collaborations with educational agencies to effect positive change. The skills, network, and self-awareness I gain through the Surge Institute will prepare me to one day take on a higher-level leadership position in education, allowing me to serve as an informed and invested leader mentioned above.”
