My name is Edward DeBarros, a 23 year old Rutgers University student. I'm an English major with Urban Teacher Education as my minor and concentration, as well as having a finished Political Science minor. I'm thankful to be so involved with STEAM Urban as a Radical Educator, pursuing a goal of empowering Newark youth to be future leaders through enriching community organizing like the Keep Art Alive Summer Program. Born and raised in Newark NJ, I've experienced and studied NPS education with an indescribable amount of love for my community that's raised me. Now I strive to give back to the same community, and aim to radically empower next generations locally.
