I grew up in the outer suburbs of Fort Lauderdale, a coastal city in South Florida, where I experienced firsthand- systemic racism, economic inequality, and violence. In my teen years, I survived sex trafficking and I made it my life's mission to protect children. I grew up in a single-parent household, raised by my mother, with many siblings in a crime-ridden area.
I graduated from Fort Lauderdale High School's class of 2017, and I currently study political science at Broward College.
I ran for school board in Broward County, Florida and received over 43k votes. Thanks to my efforts, we see a more accountable school system in my home county.
