Striving for equity in underserved communities through innovation.
The eldest of six siblings and the first in his family to graduate from high school, Eduardo is a fearless trailblazer. He maintained his 4.1 GPA while running Varsity for his school’s cross country team, earning him All-State Academic Honors. Attending a high school where the majority of students speak more than one language, Eduardo noticed a lack of support for students with limited-English proficiency. Passionate about ensuring his peers had access to an equitable education, Eduardo was selected as one of twelve students in the nation to join the Bezos Scholars Program and launch a community change initiative at his high school. Working in tandem with one of his teachers, Eduardo created an innovative onboarding program for high school English Language Learners who are new to the United States – a program that is now institutionalized at his high school. Through his passion, humility, and care for others, Eduardo has become a well-respected leader in his community.
