Untold Story #89: Meet Tina Fernandez
By Annette Comer, World’s Greatest Women
Today’s woman was raised by parents who emphasized education and work ethics. There wasn’t much money and there were lots of rules in the household which she often rebelled against. She was a classic over achiever and at the age of 4, knew she would go to Harvard and she did. It was at Harvard that she came to understand the difference between her resources growing up and what those with money had access to. This led her to become passionate about education equity. She excelled at navigating between different worlds and saw how this skill could be used to impact education. Today she is walking a path to greatness as she leads an organization focused on making it possible for race and income to no longer predict post-secondary education and upward mobility. It is my pleasure to introduce you to Tina Fernandez.
