Niasia Kennedy

Throughout my time at Great Oaks, I was able to create everlasting relationships with my students while building community. Additionally, the year of service served as a stepping stone for me to enter the field of education. I have recently transitioned to higher education, nevertheless, have experience serving underrepresented areas to achieve a greater goal. My focus is to continue serving students who look like me, in hopes they will be in a position like me. 

My year of service prepared me for my current role by dealing with large staff dynamics, and understanding how support looks different for every student. As mentioned before, my role currently deals with college students. It was my time served at Great Oaks Legacy that allowed me to gain experience building students holistically and transforming educational spaces.
