Ask Me About

Corporate Partnerships, community engagement, social media, program requirements, and my awesome co-workers.

Why I Joined the Congressional Award

I loved the commitment to community service and personal development. As someone who has participated in programs that encourage young people to get involved in their community, I enjoy seeing youth see the value in bettering their community and exploring the vast world we live in. Also, I enjoy the mission of the organization and how people from all walks of life are involved.

Program Area Highlight

I enjoy playing volleyball competitively or with friends. I also enjoy going to the beach, reading a good book, finding new restaurants with exciting cuisine, and traveling seeing new places. I am excited to explore D.C. and gain a better understanding of our nation’s capital.
