Student U Data Manager

Cynthia's Why:

My values align with Student U in believing that all children deserve a high-quality education regardless of their race, religion, language, or socioeconomic background. I believe that every child has the potential to be a leader when presented with opportunities and prepared with the necessary life and educational skills to do so. Student U is a stepping stone to reaching that goal but not only to make an impact on students but also on the Durham community. 

Cynthia outside of Student U:

Pre-Covid, I was a member of a bachata dance team. I enjoy spending time with family and friends but also enjoy spending alone time with a good action or comedy movie. My favorite place to zen is by the ocean during hot summer days. 

Advice Cynthia finds valuable:

Always assume the best. 

Professional Accomplishments:

I have 11 years of experience working in the Durham community and the last 7 years in education.

Student U start date:

July 2022
