Le'Aysha Pearson recently earned her bachelor's degree in Elementary Education with a minor in African and African-American Studies at Washington University in St. Louis. During her undergraduate studies, she founded the student organization Minority Educators of the Future and participated in the Civic Scholars Program through the Gephardt Institute of Civic Engagement, a competitive leadership program that sponsored her in conducting an independent research thesis on the use and affects of social and emotional learning in primary schools in Durban, South Africa. In addition, she studied abroad for a semester at the University of Auckland, New Zealand where she was able to learn about educational issues surrounding the indigenous Maori student population. With being a first-generation college student, education has allowed Le'Aysha to open doors for herself that she never imagined possible. Le'Aysha is extremely passionate about alleviating inequitable education systems and instilling in students throughout the globe the ability to overcome potentially insurmountable adversity through the power of education. After her Fulbright year, Le'Aysha will be completing a Master's in International Education Policy at the Harvard Graduate School of Education.
