Izoria Fields is a Brooklyn native with a passion for youth and education. Izoria believes that every person should have access to a quality education, regardless of their current socio-economic status. When she was in the 5th grade, Izoria decided that she wanted to be an accountant. Once she researched the steps she needed to take in order to make her dream a reality, she created a plan and executed it. Izoria attended Howard University in Washington, DC, where she majored in accounting and earned her bachelor’s degree in business administration. Upon graduating from Howard with her BBA Izoria continued her education at Hult International Business School. She studied in London, Dubai and Shanghai on her quest to obtain her MBA with a concentration in International Business. The business education that she received at said institutions of higher education has aided Izoria in becoming the accountant, entrepreneur, and philanthropist that she endeavored to be. While pursuing her formal education, Izoria came to the realization that many students are unable to reach their educational goals due to financial issues. Subsequently, Izoria decided that she will be a part of the solution to this problem by establishing the Agents of Change Scholarship Fund.
