I joined Jumpstart because I wanted to keep working with children even though I was pursuing a non-education major. However, after my first year with Jumpstart, I changed majors to pursue education because of the impact the experience had on me. There is no better feeling than the feeling that you’ve found your passion, and Jumpstart brought me to that. Having the opportunity to work with communities dedicated to providing quality education for their children and alongside amazing educators was something I couldn’t have found anywhere else. The support of the UW team of site managers and community of Jumpstart was outstanding, and I view my time with Jumpstart as integral to my college experience.
