The DRC has true potential to work with our elected officials and community members to make a difference in the lives of those who live in Dundalk. Dundalk is a place with beautiful nature, kind and compassionate people, and the real estate to have a thriving economy. I am excited to learn about policies that impact Dundalk, meet my fellow community members, and help keep our community clean.
In 2019, I was awarded the Gemstone Award as part of the Dundalk Renaissance Milestone Awards. After that I volunteered during some of the organization’s community engagement efforts.
So far most of my leadership and volunteer experience have been through my student engagement while attending the Community College of Baltimore County. I served as an Executive Board Member of the Student Government Association, as a Vice President of the Dundalk Campus’s chapter of Phi Theta Kappa (an international two-year honor society), served as Maryland State President for Phi Theta Kappa, and was a member of the Honors Program. Through my volunteer work, civic engagement, and student leadership I have learned about organizing and planning events, managing budgets, advocacy, and community engagement. I plan on using this knowledge to help the DRC reach their goals of community engagement and community advocacy.
