Jonathan Jean- Pierre is an aspiring Lawyer looking to change the United States education system and provide equal opportunities to all children in America. He is  working towards a dual major in Global Studies and Africana Studies, with a minor in Political Science. After Graduation, Jonathan wants to join Teach for America to tackle the education inequality in classrooms throughout America. From his upbringing and experiences in schools, he originally believed that there was no such thing as a great teacher. As Jonathan got more involved with after school programs and Teach for America, he realized that teaching is not easy, the best teachers have to go beyond their job descriptions to change the lives of the students that they teach.
