WHAT I HOPE TO LEARN FROM MY TEAMMATES
I hope to learn more about civic engagement in different sectors of the workforce and how to incorporate civics into different aspects of life.
My superpower is that I love to read. Whether it’s the news or an interesting book, I’m always reading and it keeps me informed.
I want to fill the civics-shaped hole found in the typical American high school curriculum. Especially in this polarized political environment, an outlet for students to explore and engage with civics is crucial.
A BIG QUESTION ON MY MIND
How can we stop the further polarization of society?
A CREATION I'M PROUD OF
The annual Spence Unconference. An outlet where students can design and run a workshop for other students on any topic they want relating to social justice and/or diversity in any way.
BOOKS I LOVE
Ronan Farrow’s War on Peace: The End of Diplomacy and the Decline of American Influence
It showed me the inner workings of the State Department and taught me about a lot of conflicts that happened either before I was born or when I was too young to understand.
David McKittrick and David McVea’s Making Sense of the Troubles: The Story of the Conflict in Northern Ireland: I’m really interested in the Troubles and this book provides a very clear and very interesting explanation of what occurred.
J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone: I’ve read this book so many times and every time I read I fall in love with the characters all over again.
