I am looking forward to continuing to build meaningful relationships within the Park Scholar community, learning from others and prioritizing service and community in my life. Shedding light on the injustice of police brutality and speaking truth to power, I was proud to curate stories for WICB and uplift meaningful stories in the past semesters; I am committed to being an agent of change in my community. In my past work experience, I have worked as a Congressional intern creating press clips, attending briefings ranging from my passion for gun violence prevention, LGBTQ+ justice and equity in sports and even helping to organize a town hall for Congressman MondaireJones. I also worked as the New York State Director of March For Our Lives, galvanizing young people to stand up, show up, and speak up for justice and give them the tools to register to vote. In upcoming semesters, I will continue to use my passion speaking to and acting on the importance of mental health, violence prevention programs, and the pursuit of equity.
