Student, UC Berkeley
Daniela Felix is a first-generation college student who is heavily involved in education in her home district, West Contra Costa Unified. After becoming a mother at a young age, Daniela’s passion for education justice only intensified and she began to fight for an equitable education for all children, regardless of background or zip code. Daniela played a key role in organizing parents around school choice in her district and has worked with our families since then.
She was recently accepted into Teach For America and plans to continue impacting the lives of children in her hometown of Richmond, California. She is currently a senior pursuing her B.A. in legal studies and education at UC Berkeley along with her 4-year-old daughter and husband.
Daniela is a firm believer in that every single child is capable of meeting high expectations if given the correct support. Daniela hopes to be a provider of that support.
