Teneesha graduated from SUNY at Albany as a Political Science major with a minor in Philosophy. For as long as she can remember, she always had an interest in education and when she realized this, she was eight credits away from college graduation. Teneesha heard about Blue Engine from a friend, and after looking more into the organization’s work, she was hooked. Working with Blue Engine will provide her with the opportunity to help students who are facing similar challenges that she faced as a student.
