Meet this week’s GW English Senior Spotlight: Promise Harvey from West Philadelphia!
Promise is going to teach 9th grade English through Teach for America after she graduates in the spring! Swipe to read more about the class she’s loving this semester, her other post-grad plans, and her advice for underclassmen!
Promise majors in English because she likes being able to freely express her thoughts and feelings in addition to constantly being exposed to different genres and authors. She says:
Communication is key! You may be intimidated to talk to your professors at first, but they will be your greatest assets, so don’t let nerves hinder you.
She will be doing Teach for America in Houston, Texas, teaching 9th-grade English. She hopes to eventually transition into policy work that focuses on advocating for education equity.
