She is currently the second vice president of the chapter; Throughout her 15 years of service she has served as Recording Secretary, Parliamentarian, Chairman of ASCEND and Community Service Committee.
She is most passionate about the #CAP target. She shares, “I believe we as adults have a responsibility to help in developing our youth. They are our future.” Her hopes and goals are to continue to reach out to not only youth who are excelling, but the youth who need mentorship so that they can recognize their potential, and have someone nurture their potential so that it can grow. She believes many of our youth are impacted by poverty, disparities, and family dysfunction and their lights are diminished before they can spark. She is hopeful that #CAP can help keep that light burning and growing.
