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 mainly passionate about mental health, human rights, immigration, and environment because they’re reoccurring issues that haven’t been fully addressed or given the needed alleviation.
What activities do like to do regularly as a pastime?
I enjoy going to the beach, having picnics at the Rose garden, or just in general being out with friends and family - especially since we live in such a beautiful town.
What clubs/organizations/sports/job are you involved with outside of youth making change?
I did lacrosse as a freshman but as a sophomore and junior I’ve been doing cheer! Since freshman year, my friends and I have been volunteering at this football organization called Friday Night Lights (FNL) where we worked the snack shack.
Is there anything else that you would like people to know about yourself?
I love music and banana bread.
