Grace began taking college courses at Broward College at the age of 13. A year later, she transferred to Florida Atlantic University (FAU) and began taking a full college course load. At the age of 16, prior to receiving her high school diploma, Grace obtained a Bachelor's degree in Criminal Justice with a minor in Spanish, graduating magna cum laude. Two years later, she received a Master’s degree in Public Administration from FAU. Grace has also received numerous academic honors and awards, namely, PTK Omega Phi Honor Society, Omicron Delta Kappa National Leadership Honor Society, National Society of Collegiate Scholars, and Delta Epsilon Iota Academic Honor Society. She also participated in FAU’s wind ensemble, played in two community youth orchestras, volunteered in the Broward County Teen Court program, tutored students for the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT), and volunteered for various service activities at her church.
Grace is professionally trained as a PSAT/SAT/ACT tutor and has tutored high school students at prestigious private schools in Broward County, Florida that have produced among the highest number of national merit scholar recipients in the State of Florida. She has been tutoring since she was 13 years old and has influenced numerous students striving for greater academic heights as well as those facing academic challenges. In part, this has been made possible through the students she serves at G.B.3 Literati, the tutoring program she co-founded with her two sisters. Grace is also fluent in spoken and written Spanish.
Grace considers herself to be a community servant, “peacemaker”, and a facilitator for the development of programs, tailored for youth, that will positively affect their lives and the viability of their communities. To aid in achieving her vision, Grace is working on her second Master’s degree in Music Education at Boston Conservatory at Berklee.
Aside from working towards her degree, tutoring, and playing the flute, Grace loves to read and crochet for relaxation.
