From a young age, I have been intrigued by the world of politics. My high school student government experience led me to be a part of Auburn University's Student Government Association as a member of Freshman Forum, a Senator for the College of Liberal Arts and Chairperson of the Diversity and Multicultural Affairs Committee. I have been active in Auburn University's Black Student Union serving as a member of Freshman Committee, Community Outreach Ambassador and as President. Throughout my time in both of these positions, I learned that a public must be aware of what their leaders are doing. With knowledge, the public can hold their leaders accountable. Because democracy is a government by the people, for the people and of the people.
