Where are you from? Newburyport, MA
What is your favorite food? Acai bowls
What made you want to join The 84 Movement? The 84 Movement’s message aligns with my personal beliefs on tobacco regulation. I wanted to meet other like-minded peers and work together to advocate for reform. The power of our youth run organization is astonishing, and I am glad to be a part of it.
How did you first learn about The 84? I first learned about The 84 though my summer internship at the Massachusetts State House.
What is your favorite part about being on the Statewide Leadership Team? I love being a Statewide Leader because I get to advocate for positive change in local communities all across Massachusetts. I’ve also enjoyed getting to know the other members of the SLT and making new friends!
What is one thing you HAVE to have in your backpack at all times? Bert’s Bees chapstick.
What is one of the funniest moments you have had working with the Statewide Leadership Team? One time Carly and Danielle bought us Thai food; I thought I was eating chicken until Danielle told me it was soy. I was taken off guard and proceeded to spit it across the table with a bewildered look on my face.
What is one message you have for youth about their role in tobacco control? Speak up. Your voice is more powerful than you realize.
