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.):
Issues that I’m most passionate about are immigration, women’s rights, drug abuse and racial discrimination. With all that is going on in the world I feel like these issues are more prominent especially in today's society. There has been more light shined on these issues recently, and we need to keep building on that. Making sure that we don’t let this become a trend and then one day we all forgot about it.
What activities do like to do regularly as a pastime?
Some things that I do in my pastime are reading, painting, doing community service, baking/cooking and recently started exercising more. I do some of these things daily but usually it depends on my schedule but I try to do these things four times a week.
What clubs/organizations/sports/job are you involved with outside of youth making change?
I’m in AVID, GLO, Key club and Link Crew. I also volunteer at the hospital.
