TYLER JANEÉ WARD
Founder, Executive Director
Tyler Janeé Ward is a Los Angeles-based educator, media specialist, and travel influencer. She studied Mass Media Arts at Clark Atlanta University and was inspired to pursue education after studying abroad in Costa Rica. This is where she observed the lack of diversity among students of color, especially those attending Historically Black Colleges and Universities which led her to join Teach for America and obtain a M.Ed in Curriculum and Instruction.
Tyler Janeé's passion for travel led her to travel to over 20 countries by 25 years of age while teaching language skills in South Africa, earning a Teaching English As a Foreign Language (TEFL) certification, and teaching American culture to high school students in Spain. Alongside her teaching career, she founded the non-profit organization Study Elsewhere, which aims to provide study abroad opportunities and resources for historically underrepresented students /communities.
