I have spent my seventeen years exploring opportunities in
both art and politics. I have been
creating art for longer than I can remember and have been heavily involved in
politics throughout my high school career. In addition, I

worked for and with many of our established and aspiring politicians. I
strive to be as active in my community as I can and do everything I can to
improve theworld around me.
