Evan PhotoWhy did you join the MYC?

I joined the MYC because, when most leaders have been recycling the same talking points for the past fifty years, the only people who can advocate for youth-centered policies are ourselves.

What are your passions/hobbies?

I love laughing, reading a good book, getting beaten in every single video game by my brother, talking with the people I love, and my dog Pancake.

Name one youth you admire and why?

Greta Thunberg, the Swedish climate activist, for proving that activism can start at any age, and the biggest voices are usually the most unexpected.

What is an issue/movement that is important to you?

One of the issues that most resonates with me is mental health services for high school students, who are given far less support than they deserve in a system that increasingly demands perfection.
