This week we speak with Raj Salhotra. Raj is the Executive Director of Momentum Education, a non-profit in Houston, Texas helping low-income and first-generation students achieve their higher education goals. Raj earned his bachelor’s at Rice University and his J.D. at Harvard Law School. Raj shared how he developed an early passion for education and policy and how his experience interning at the White House and working for Teach for America shaped his desire to give back to students in the Houston community. Raj had great advice for young professionals interested in politics, as well as encouragement for law students pursuing a non-traditional career path.
