I would like to take this opportunity to tell you all a little bit about myself. I was born in Chicago, Illinois and have lived in Florida since I was five years old. I went to high school in Lakeland and to college at Florida State University. I double majored in Political Science and History. I have spent about two years volunteering for and working as staff on various political campaigns both in Florida and have volunteered in Georgia, South Carolina, and Virginia. Following this time I came to Bradenton, FL to spend more time with my family and to get involved in education. I'm very excited about working with you this year and look forward to helping you gain a greater understanding of our political system and where we have come from as a society.
