Hometown: Bronx, NY
Education: Politics, Economics & Law, SUNY Old Westbury
Racquel graduated from SUNY Old Westbury in Long Island, NY. She interned at a non profit in the Bronx where she gained an interest in community work. However, it wasn’t until she completed a year of service, predominantly in the Southern States, that she actually witnessed an inequitable and unjust education system within the communities that she served. This drove her to give back to her own community and therefore, joined Blue Engine where she could specifically help low income students within the Bronx.
