"I worked in the Oakland Unified School District for the past year while I was preparing for the Broker's Exam. My supervisor was helpful to the best of his abilities and always willing to educate me on things I wasn't sure about."

"I’ve worked with OUSD since 2018, and have a passion for serving youth in Oakland. OUSD has a lot of potential but there needs to be more organization, and realistic support for staff and educators to do the job they’re called to do. It was a nice run, and I still have every intention to give back to the student when I’m in a better position to do so."
