“In acknowledging the privilege that I and many others have enjoyed in terms of access to education, I am a strong believer in the power of education and would like to contribute my effort to programs and initiatives that seek to expand educational opportunities to those who have systematically been restricted or denied access, particularly the incarcerated population.” – Natasha Narayanan
