Personal Statement

From a young age, I've recognized higher education as a vital factor in transforming economic circumstances. Education can play a pivotal role in improving upward social mobility. As the effects of the Illinois Budget Impasse became more evident with the increasing departure of both staff and students at my university, I decided to become involved with the efforts of the University of Illinois' Advocacy Network. I have since become the president of the Student Advocacy Coalition, a coalition of faculty and students that are dedicated to advocating on behalf of the interests of both the university and student body to our elected officials. I am a firm believer that even the brightest lightbulb cannot shine if the electric bill isn't paid. So, I have dedicated myself to ensuring that higher education remains a priority to policymakers.
