I am a student at Drew University in the Class of 2018 earning a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science with a minor in Leadership for Social Action. After becoming aware of the many injustices in society, my long-term goal is to address them through public policy. I have volunteered in my hometown of Perth Amboy with young children, homeless veterans, and families that lacked sufficient food. I learned that temporary assistance can only help so much and what truly matters are the laws and bills introduced in our nation and state capitals. I am also heavily involved in my school’s government as a Senator.  This position has provided me with the knowledge that those who hold the voice for the people are the ones who can implement the most change. I plan to attend law school and ultimately I hope to earn a position in government where I can represent a multitude of people.
