As a first-year student, I’m looking forward to building a foundation with the Park Scholar community. I will be taking part in the WRFI group service project shedding light on the injustice of police brutality and speaking truth to power. Personally, I will be continuing my service with the March for Our Lives organization, working as the State Director For March For Our Lives NY. We are galvanizing young people to stand up, show up, and speak up for justice and giving them the tools to register to vote. Young people are the future and so I take a lot of pride in working with an organization that is youth driven and cares so deeply about bringing the voices of the youth into all social movements. I also work on the campaign to elect Mondaire Jones into office for the NY-17 Congressional District. Trying to stay connected while not on campus, I have started working as a newscaster at WICB/VIC. I'm excited to keep telling stories while meeting new people at IC.
