Personal Statement

My passion for helping others began as a young kid volunteering at a local food bank and soup kitchen with my mother. This experience taught me the value of giving back to my community and the impact it has on others. As I grew up, I translated this in scouting through my work with the National Youth Leadership Training, where I had the opportunity to teach individuals the skills necessary to become strong leaders. As I moved on to college, I knew I wanted to work hard to make a significant impact on my new community. I then became involved in and even started my own political club on campus, I volunteered to speak on self-advocacy for the First-Gen Student Summit, I worked on a local political campaign, and I have even recently decided to run for the local School Board. Through my work, I have focused on using political engagement to foster a new age of informed and excited leaders of tomorrow.
