Bradford Smith

Hometown: Dix Hills, NY

Education: Political Science, Columbia University

Bradford’s prior work experience has primarily been with education nonprofits such as Prep for Prep, and through these experiences he witnessed the ways in which different styles of teaching which pay greater attention to each individual student can positively impact a child’s outlook on school and their assessment of their own ability to succeed, both within and outside of academics. In his time as a BETA, he hopes to encourage kids to view school not just as something to get through, but as an avenue through which they can improve themselves, explore their own interests, and begin to shape their own futures.
