Hometown: Springdale, Arkansas
How do you think you’ll create transformational change in your community?
I see myself creating transformational change by increasing political involvement and representation in the regions of Northwest Arkansas as well as the South and Midwest. In my activities to date, I’ve seen that policy only works when it incorporates the people it affects into its decision-making framework. Specifically in the realm of education, I see myself working as an advocate for underrepresented groups and using my career to target these groups for civic engagement.
