Jozian Molina, MPA

August Alumni Spotlight

LEAP Academy Class of 2010

Jozie is a Camden native, who enjoys traveling to different countries and immersing herself into international culture and cuisine, touring art galleries and capturing eye-catching photographs. After graduating high school, she attended Rutgers University–Camden and majored in Childhood Studies. During this time, she worked as a tutor at LEAP for students in grades 3-8, and as a K-12 substitute teacher. Upon the completion of her bachelor’s degree, she rejoined the LEAP Academy family as a College Access Program Associate. Her work ethic and dedication to the LEAP mission ultimately landed her a position as Assistant to the Principal. This exposure to school leadership sparked an interest in Jozie that resulted in her acceptance into the Rutgers University M.P.A. program with a concentration in Education Leadership. Shortly after graduating with her master’s degree in May 2020, Jozie acquired her School Administrator certification and was promoted to Assistant Chief Academic Officer. Jozie takes great pride in being part of the mere 4% of Latinas who have completed a master’s degree by age 29 and plans to continue carrying that pride when she earns her PhD in years to come.
