During my high school years at Eagle Academy in the Bronx, becoming a leader was instilled into us since the first day of school. Every action was geared towards us becoming leaders. The goal was to serve as role models for our younger colleagues. We were trained to be confident and voice our opinions. My experience at Eagle Academy was instrumental in bringing me out of my shell. It provided me with the confidence to thrive in any environment. My name is Saleem Sallah and I am currently a sophomore at Monroe College majoring in Computer Information Systems. I was born in Kumasi, Ghana and spent half of my early childhood growing up between Kumasi and The Bronx. At EdLab, I am part of the Digi Q team and charged with digitally archiving Teachers College’s historical materials.
