With what organizations are you involved on campus?

  • College Democrats
  • Model United Nations
  • Student Senate
  • Ford Council

Why did you choose Ford?

I chose Ford because I knew Ford would provide me with the means to be active politically and active within my community. Also, I knew Ford would inform me of topics I did not know much about.

What current issue/topic is important to you?

The most important issue to me is climate change.

In what ways have you been involved with this cause at Albion?

I helped restart the College Democrats, which had been defunct for several years. One of the main goals of this club is to raise awareness of the destructive nature of climate change.

What has been the most influential moment for you thus far at Albion College?

My most influential moment at Albion would have to be when we went to the USS Gerald R Ford event in Midland. The event allowed me to meet so many leading individuals and see how political fundraising works.

What do you envision yourself doing after Albion?

I plan on either working for the State Department in some capacity or running for local office.
