LaShawn photoWhy did you join the MYC?

The truth is, I didn't really have a reason for joining the MYC, as my mom suggested it to me and I kind of just went with it because I wasn't involved in anything else. The MYC has given me something to advocate for, a way to make a positive difference. That is what brings me back year after year.

What are your passions/hobbies?

I like to watch anime and read books.

Name one youth you admire and why?

I admire Elexis who was a former MYCer. I have known them for a while and I admire their strength, voice, and leadership

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

An issue that is important to me is housing affordability.
