Born in Antigua, Virgin Island, Khulia lived in the U.S. for most of her life. She holds a B.S. in Human Services, with a Minor in Human Service Administration and a B.S. Social Studies Graduate Certificate in Secondary Urban Education with Licensure.
She started her work in education as a Promise Fellow at a Charter school, and saw some amazing work by a Black woman, which she had never seen before. She went back to school to become a teacher, at the same time, her daughter was getting pushed out, and she couldn’t believe it.
She was encouraged to say and do something about her situation, as she was learning and she was not alone. She gained confidence in her voice, and she has been fighting ever since.
Khulia fights for education justice because she is sick and tired of just being sick and tired of watching her community, the Black community, not be able to shine as children, which leads to further oppression as adults.
