Tanita is a proud graduate of the University of Texas at San Antonio. Her passion for education and working with underserved youth developed from her time working with the Children’s Defense Fund Freedom Schools Summer Program, and time spent abroad studying Education and Social Change in South Africa. Prior to joining the Genesys Works team she served as a College Access Member, where she worked closely with a cohort of students at Jefferson Davis High School to help with their college application process, financial aid, and scholarship applications. She has had the privilege of working with students who were participants in the Genesys Works Program and has witnessed the positive impact it has on their lives. She is excited to be a part of Genesys Works-Houston and looking forward to working with the youth of Houston as they prepare to start a new chapter in their lives.
