Letter from the Chief of Operations - Internal
Dear Stuyvesant Community,
As a first-generation American, I’ve always known that a good education and strong community can be the difference between success and failure. I’m very excited to join an organization with alumni from a prestigious school that cultivates students to achieve. The stories I have heard about experiences at Stuyvesant High School shaping the lives of many as adults have only increased my desire to support continuing to make this possible for our students.
Before joining the educational movement in New York, I came from a math and science-driven background, which makes me feel even more connected to the mission of Stuyvesant and its population.
With the numerous changes that have been made in the Alumni Association, I’m excited to be a member of a team seeking more progress, greater results, and a better-connected community.
