Mustafa is a staunch advocate for underserved communities and believes that every student should have access to a high-quality education that prepares them for higher education and beyond. He has had the pleasure to work with students and families from diverse backgrounds as a teacher in Tukwila, Seattle, and Kent, Washington.
Mustafa received a Master’s Degree in Education Policy from the University of Washington, so that he could effectively collaborate with his local community on policy issues. During his graduate program he interned as a Data Analyst at the Community Center for Education Results on the Reconnect to Opportunity program, and on the Black Student Project. He gained further experience analyzing education data at Cultivate Learning, a research organization within the University of Washington focused on supporting childcare and early learning programs.
Outside of work, he loves spending time with his family, especially his nieces and nephews. He also enjoys playing and watching basketball.
