    Campaign Platform:

    I am a passionate individual who strives to voice the community and its people in both my creative work and daily life. Being a Parsons senator would allow me to be an advocate for my fellow peers, collaborating + designing necessary solutions, programs and/or initiatives to best serve the Parsons + TNS student body. Further, being invested in listening and actively cultivating an empowering cohort for positive change and impact is a top priority of my time here- and I can't think of a better position to help me help others to create this environment.

    My dedication to detail, investment in service projects, and overall motivation to positively impact who I interact with/what I do will best help me recognize and make sure the students at Parsons are heard. As a communications major interested in non-profit design/social impact, I spend too much time investigating and exploring successful management and strategies of amazing community programs. I would love to bring this ever-evolving passion beyond my personal work and into the lives of students via the Student Senate.

    Other relevant groups or experiences:

    During my freshman year at Parsons, I have been treasurer of Kerrey's Hall Council- working to engage my fellow residents in community-building programs and activities, alongside representing and voicing the concerns of students in our meetings. At Atlee High School, I was a member of the student government for 4 years, with leadership positions as secretary and treasurer. For 3 years, I was a student representative on our School Improvement team, a faculty-student team dedicated to collaborative community initiatives to enrich and enhance the atmosphere of our school.

    I served as Editor-in-Chief and lead designer throughout my 3 years as a journalism student. Consistent reporting and collaboration with students about their experience and thoughts within the community best aided my understanding of our school environment and what it needed. Additionally, I participated in clubs and organizations including National Art, National Spanish, and National Honor Societies, Beta, Key Club, and alongside other community-based volunteer programs centered around exemplifying our love for the community and best giving back to it.
