She became a student ambassador for DC Statehood fighting for equal voting rights in the District of Columbia. She then joined the Bernie 2020 Presidential campaign in 2019 as an Operations Manager for the National office. She also organized a student-led Bernie group on Howard’s campus, which eventually became an active YDSA chapter.

She has a passion for helping people recognize the power they hold to improve their lives and those around them.
