  • Ronalei Gasetoto, Education Equity Coordinator, AmeriCorps Member – trg9@uw.edu

My passions come from my cultural upbringings and love for school. As an indigenous learner, I am excited to learn from and with our younger students. Looking forward to all the resilience and respect through the stories they tell us. The future navigators in our educational system. I believe that all students have power within their truths and experiences they tell. I am grateful for this opportunity with Riverways, to be part of transformational efforts that engages students with support throughout the school year.
