Shaekerria

Growing up, I was taught to never forget your roots. I am a proud southern belle from the great state of Virginia, a historical home to many well-known government officials. I have high hopes to follow in their footsteps and become a great politician. Currently, I am pursuing a double major in political science and jurisprudence at Montclair State University.

The creation of laws fascinates me because I am an artist and I enjoy creating new ideas for the benefit of others. In fact, I want to become a lawyer before I become a politician in order to get familiar with the laws and see how they affect individuals every day. As a lawyer and politician I want to fight for the people who are overlooked in the system and reassure their faith in the American government.

As the saying goes, “It takes a village to raise a child.” America Needs You will be the village that gives me the skills, motivation, and support that I need to make my vision become reality. I am beyond blessed to be a part of this new family.
