Fund Fellows: Meet Hailey!

Meet Hailey, a New Sector Fellow at The Fund!

Hailey was born and raised in Chicago. She is a rising senior at Washington University in St. Louis majoring in urban studies and anthropology and minoring in American culture studies. During the academic year, Hailey mentors freshmen and plans her school’s TEDxWustl and OWN IT conferences.

This summer, Hailey will work with The Fund’s other Fellows to interview principals throughout the city and create news posts, profiles and feature videos to tell their stories for The Fund. Hailey loves meeting new people and believes that each new interaction exposes her to fresh ideas, interests, and inspirations. This world of unknowns encourages her to continuously learn from others and seek out new adventures.

By meeting with Chicago’s principals, she hopes to understand the current education climate in the city and recognize the work principals are doing each day. She is excited to dive into Chicago’s public education scene, and  looks forward to helping improve Chicago public schools alongside The Fund’s dedicated team!
