What makes me ICONIC?
Power Surge, AKA Salwa Daouk. Growing up, Power Surge saw firsthand the struggles that students faced in underfunded and understaffed schools. But instead of feeling defeated by these challenges, Power Surge was inspired to make a difference. Power Surge’s passion for education advocacy only grew stronger as she learned more about the ways in which systemic racism and inequality were perpetuated through education. It was during a particularly intense study session that Power Surge felt a sudden burst of energy surge through her body. She felt as if every cell in her body was being charged up, and before she knew it, she was surrounded by a bright aura of energy. As she experimented with her newfound powers, Power Surge discovered that she could channel this energy in a variety of ways. She could shoot beams of energy from her hands, create force fields to protect herself and others, and even fly by propelling herself through the air with bursts of energy. As she battled against entrenched power structures and the forces of inequality, Power Surge never lost sight of her passion for history and politics. She knew that the struggles for equity and justice were ongoing, and that the fight for educational equality was just one part of a larger movement for social change. Through it all, Power Surge remained resilient and optimistic, always striving to make a difference in the world and create a better future for herself and for generations to come.
