Why did you decide to run for the international board? I believe it is the best way to make a bigger change in Key Club. During my time as a school officer and on the district board, I saw what needed improvements and tried to find solutions. Now, as a trustee, I can accomplish these goals.

What is your favorite Key Club memory, and why? My favorite memory was attending the Summer Leadership Conference this past summer. This was the first event I was able to attend in person after COVID-19, and I had an amazing time meeting new people. I love being able to attend Key Club events such as this because it brings people from all over who can bond over this organization.
