What is your favorite food? Fruit.
What made you want to join The 84 Movement? I am personally affected by the tobacco and vaping industry because I have family members that smoke and I have seen the negative effects of this. As a result of this, I want to prevent people from being addicted to nicotine.
How did you first learn about The 84? I learned about it through my Chapter Advisor, who encouraged me to join.

What is one of the funniest moments you have had working with the Statewide Leadership Team? I don’t remember a funny moment but one of my favorite moments would be doing wall sits with Carly at event and in person meetings.
What is one message you have for youth about their role in tobacco control? You got this! We don’t have to leave it to the adults to fix the problem, WE can do it, WE ARE THE FUTURE. No matter how difficult it may be, just push through.
