Meet Ashea! Current School: College of Staten Island Why are you passionate about education? Education has always been a key priority growing up with an immigrant parent. Educational values and pushing to pursue education further than middle school was one of my biggest goals. I saw my parents struggle because they did not obtain a high school diploma or a degree in any sort of higher education. Through my life experiences, I've seen how far education can take someone and what happens without it. Favorite Summer Pastime: My favorite summer activity is to volunteer for the American Red Cross and the ACS (Army Community Service).
