I want to change something
I do a little bit of everything, but debate is probably my biggest passion. Coming out of middle school I wasn’t really involved in anything, but I did a program called We the People where you take a portion of the Constitution and you have to defend it and answer questions about it. My social studies teacher pulled me into it, and I won districts and states for middle school. Then I guess I figured out that oratory and debate were my thing. Freshmen year I joined Student Congress and that’s where I got really into politics.
In terms of what I want to do when I get older, I’m kind of polarized in what I like to do because I enjoy science and I enjoy STEM. I like chemistry but honestly, it’s one of those things where I feel like I have an obligation to go into politics. I think that after everything that I’ve learned, at this point, I want to change something from here on out. I want to take money out of politics. Obviously that’s going to be hard, but I think more people have to be represented than they are and I think that would probably be my mission. I want to end up being in D.C. somehow. I know the cost of living is ridiculous so I’m going to have to work my butt off, but that’s what I plan on doing.
