Tell us about a person who inspired you in the ideals of public service.
Specifically Greta Thunburg is a personal hero of mine as well as a champion public speaker and activist against climate change. As a young person, her story inspires me to take hold of my own voice as well as destiny as a younger generation to shape the future world I and many more to come will call home, including both the physical and political environment.
What lessons or tips have you learned that you’d like to share with other Pennsylvanians?
I want other Pennsylvanians, specifically Pennsylvanians around my age, to stop complaining about problems that are possible to stand up and change. I want them to get involved in the fight against issues that matter to them.
Why are you involved in the Citizen Map Corps?
I am involved because after crafting my map, I discovered and became inspired by the massive community surrounding Draw the Lines and the wonderful, empowered individuals who are actively fighting against gerrymandering. I want to take control of my own vote and actually do something to increase the power of the individual rather than sitting back and taking it.
