Victoria R. Nauman
On my first day of Teach For America-Baltimore, I was asked: “Who are you to teach here?” My initial inclination was to respond that I am educated, a leader, and am passionate about seeing children succeed. I am a first-generation college student who had to work my way through undergrad and know how to tackle adversity. However, to say I was naïve and underprepared would be an understatement.
I am a first-generation college graduate. That achievement alone has already transformed the trajectory of my life and the lives of my family for the better. But I cannot and will not stop there. My ultimate dream is to become the first lawyer in my family and pave the way for others. I was born in Haiti and immigrated to the United States at a young age. Embracing my diverse background helped shape the person who I am today and encouraged me to explore diverse issues.
