Joseph was born in the Houston area to Asian and Latinx parents. He grew up just north of Houston, in Spring, and has lived in Pearland since 2011. He attended college in town, graduating from Houston Baptist University with a double major in Biology and History and also has an MLA from the University of St. Thomas, with a focus on History.
None of those opportunities would have been possible without the head start he received in local public schools. Joseph believes that these same opportunities should exist for all students, from all walks of life. We must make sure that our schools help cultivate the future success of their students. He will work to enable teachers to do the best work possible, and ensure everyone has access to the tools needed to make this happen.
