"I came into North Dakota as an out of state student in 2012. Over time, I got involved with the community in various capacities of service and leadership. Initially an outsider, I soon realized that I had found my home in this welcoming community. I instantly loved the people around me. I felt connected to what felt like a growing family. As a community organizer, it is my firm belief that the most healthy and active communities are made by collaboration - I will bring this spirit of cooperation as a Representative of District 10, and while working for greater North Dakota. I believe a forward thinking and hands-on approach can effectively address vital elements in our community - these include educational equity, the growing workforce needs, and the housing crisis. I will foster a safe and welcoming community for all residents. I want to bridge barriers, build futures, connect communities, share objectives, and work together to achievable solutions to our common problems. In the past decade, I have helped create positive change in our community through various leadership positions. I have connected people and communities for a stronger future - work I'm proud of. These team efforts involve all of us as stakeholders making our district and state the best place to live. I work hard for development and growth. I listen. I promote civic education in immigrant communities to enhance the involvement of new Americans in the political process. I travel the state, organizing with candidates to ensure we are all involved in growing together for a better future. I look forward to working for the circumstances we all want, and if we do not find them, we must make them."
