During my time in college, I became restless over the fact that certain voices and identities, even if they were not my own, were excluded from conversations and distanced from opportunities to shape the campus on a large scale and engage with others different from themselves. Through Coro I have been able to harness this restlessness, writing county-level policy with a social justice towards a more inclusive economic and workforce, and learn ways how to develop an adeptness for advancing social justice through public policy.
Social justice through public policy gets me up in the morning today, and it will be what gets me up in the morning tomorrow. I intend to dedicate my life to bringing about a more justice and inclusive democracy through government in both departmental and high-level elected positions.
During my time in Pittsburgh, I have and will continue to immerse myself in a local focus; National Affairs Week will elevate myself and the other fellows to 30,000 feet, only from this level can we see how the pieces of the puzzle develop into the whole picture.
