Vice President

Monisha Howard is a teacher in the public school system where she works in an alternative school setting. During her time there, she has learned how much potential is inside of the youth that many people have given up on. She works diligently with each student to let them know that they can do anything they put their minds to. Monisha considers herself a down to earth role model that young people easily connect with. She believes that each and every person has a purpose and she strives to help them realize what that is. Upon realization, she then happily helps them work towards it.
