What is something you care deeply about and hope to transform? 

I care deeply for children and how their experiences and lack of exposure to opportunity act as a limiting factor to their potential. I know I will be working to help young persons and children’s in my future and I hope to transform the way that parents and family dynamics work together to support them, as well as work to reform the flawed way in which the state intervenes with low income and immigrant families.
