Why did you join Key Club?

I joined Key Club because I was asked to join by the president at the time. I thought of Key Club as the fun club that was always going on trips, and I wanted to be a part of that.

Past Key Club International Leadership Experience:

During the 2022-2023 service year, I had the opportunity to serve as lieutenant governor of Jamaica’s Division 3. I also served as a member of the Truly International Taskforce.

Why did you decide to run for the international board?

I decided to run for two reasons:

I wanted to serve and impact not only my home, school and community but also the world.

I wanted more international representation (non-U.S. districts) on the board.
