UCLA. MBA. Proudest Achievement Essay

But as I left teaching behind, I searched for ways to continue serving, often outside of the workplace.

In 2010, I took charge of the TFA alumni board’s first-ever service project – a book drive for More than Words, a used bookstore.

Our goal was to collect 1,000 books among five board-members.
