However, once she realized that it was not of her interest, Soto then switched her major to English and took on a summer fellowship to teach at her former middle school. Upon realizing how there were a little number of teachers of color in schools, Soto discovered she wanted to become a teacher. Once she achieved her dream of teaching, Soto knew that she loves to work with young individuals who she believes must recognize their power and strength outside of the classroom and in their school.
