What motivates you to give back to your community?
When you get to make a phone call saying you’ve found a solution to someone’s problem, that satisfaction is like no other feeling in the world.
What advice would you give your 22-year-old self?
Slow down and enjoy life. You don’t need to reach your goals so fast. You’re only young once!
What would you like to be doing when you’re 40?
I wouldn’t mind still being involved with politics, hopefully in a higher position. I would also like to be running my own business, or at least that’s what I intend to do.
Why did you choose your profession?
My generation was in dire need of representation on issues that will be affecting us for the rest of our lives. Young adults my age don’t really understand the impact the smallest, most minuscule laws will have upon them.
