Why did you join MYC? I want desperately for teens to have a say in the policy that affects us, and I think that this program allows me and a board of other young adults with differing life experiences to do just that.

What is one goal you have for next year in MYC? My only main goal is to have everyone’s voice on the MYC to be heard and experience how much change can be made as a team, working together. I think that as a young adult, it’s incredibly frustrating for you to be stuck in a powerless position while everything around you is changing at the speed of light, for better or for worse. To me, the MYC provides me and other teens an outlet for us to make valuable, realistic change in the world we are planning to enter as adults in a few short years.
