Education Transformed My Life
Leticia Huerta’s life was transformed by the educational opportunities she had growing up. Now she hopes to do the same for the next generation of students as a 2017 San Antonio corps member.

TFA's goal is achieving educational equity for every single student no matter their identity. That really resonated with me because I was bilingual and I also was low income. There could have been limitations for me and they could have been something that made me not get to where I am, but because of the teachers that I had and the opportunities education opened up to me, I was able to get where I'm at right now. I wanted to do the same thing for students, or at least just make them believe that they're capable no matter how much money their parents make, or what their native language was.
