School: Ernest Righetti High School
What issue area are you most passionate about? Which do you know the most about? (Immigration, environment, woman’s rights, mental health, LGBTQ rights, etc.):
I'm passionate about immigration because that is what made up our country, and my family immigrated here to America. I'm all about LGBTQ rights. They are human too. Just because, they love someone or identify differently does not make them any different. Also, I am passionate about the environment. Our world is really beautiful, and I want to visit every place I possibly can. But we also have to protect it. It's our beautiful, gorgeous home.
What activities do like to do regularly as a pastime?
I love to listen to music. Music really influences me, and I just about listen to it every day. It really is powerful. Also, I watch anime and read manga in my spare time. The shows that I watch really do teach me things and are just generally entertaining.
What clubs/organizations/sports/job are you involved with outside of youth making change?
I've been swimming for the Santa Maria Swim Club for six years now. I am in the second-highest group which is called the Seniors. I truly have a passion for swimming. I briefly swam for Righetti's girls swim team, but it was cut short due to Covid. I am a part of the Kindness Club and ASTRA at Righetti.
Is there anything else that you would like people to know about yourself?
I'm pretty shy at first, but will definitely strike a conversation with someone if they start it. I'm always here for anyone to talk to me about anything. 🙂
