My passion for service stems from the City of Alva and the Northwestern Oklahoma State University campus. The people of this community have adopted me in and have provided so much to me and my education; giving back is the best way I can repay them. I have worked to become involved in many different aspects of the university and community. My service as the treasurer of the Student Government Association has allowed me to assist in organizing and executing event for student body at the university. Volunteering at the local elementary schools as a tutor and mentor allows me to leave a positive impression on the next generation of this community. Civic engagement has connected me with this small city. Seeing the impact that I make on those around me has been the greatest pleasure of my college experience. I continue to gain experience on how to better my community through the Leadership Northwestern class, taught by the university's senior administrators. I look forward to continuing my life of civic engagement into the Peace Corps and someday running for public office.
