Walter Hood

“If it wasn’t for TMCF… I would not have been granted the opportunity to travel outside the Midwest and expand my potential. Through my experiences, I was able to network and develop lifelong relationships with my peers, gain professional mentors and receive endless support from the TMCF Staff.

I am a reflection of Justice Thurgood Marshall because… despite the limited reach of opportunities that exist where I am from, I was able surpass those barriers and take advantage of unique experiences that exposed me to a career in education as a TQRP Fellow, provided insight into the retail industry through by internship with Walmart, and overall changed the trajectory of my life.”
