Gyashi Curry ’22, School of Education

Gyashi Curry ’22

Meet Gyashi Curry, an Organization and Leadership EdD candidate inspired to use his education at USF to reform education policy.

Describe your educational experience at USF.

I began attending as a HESA Graduate student in the fall of 2020. I adore the cohort system, as well as the School of Education as a whole. I have felt validated, seen, heard, held accountable, and understood. The space that has been created within the "classroom" has been amazing for me. It's been very inviting even through Zoom.  Through USF’s social justice lens, students learn to become hyper-critical of the institutions around them. This makes us fierce practitioners teaching us how to advocate for social justice on behalf of our students. Even though I've only stepped foot on campus once, I feel a part of the small community at USF.

Where do you see yourself after graduation? 

After graduation, I would love to pursue my Ph.D. in Educational Leadership and perhaps study Law. I would like to work on educational policy that will directly impact the lives of the students I have worked with extensively over the last several years. Eventually, I would love to become a professor, providing visible representation for future students like me.
