My story represents what’s at stake in finding the best superintendent. I am an undocumented student who emigrated from Honduras at the age of eight. I graduated from Richmond High School and now attend the University of California, Berkeley. While I am grateful to attend such a prestigious university, I also realize now that my high school education did not properly prepare me for college, particularly in the areas of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
