Lakeisha St Joy is one of Steppingstone’s newest College Success Academy Advisors. A Boston College graduate, she has served as a Corps Member at City Year San Jose and as a College Success Academy tutor.
“I’m a Boston native, hailing from Dorchester. I am a young, faithful, hopeful, and loving woman with an undying love for the people. I believe in the innate power each and every single person has to be free and do what it takes to make sure that their freedom is theirs wherever they go. I have embarked on my journey to empower people by working in the education field. I have worked with elementary to high school students, tutoring and teaching young people in areas where the educational system has failed them. However, beyond the traditional role of educator, I love my students endlessly and push them to be their best selves, fiercely and fearlessly. I am committed to the true liberation of oppressed peoples everywhere, first and foremost Black liberation, and am looking for ways to best advocate for people and empower the people to demand what is already theirs and lead them to the action that will make such demands come to fruition. However, in addition to all the above, I am a creative, radiant, family oriented and fierce shining star. I love to dance, laugh and just embrace the moment I’m in.”
