Advocacy is my passion. Engaging in community building, finding solutions, and having conversations about how we all have a responsibility to build a more tolerant society, excites me.
Public Speaking Engagements
Leadership Team for Denver Walk of Apraxia
Jan. 2017/18 & Aug. 2017/18
As 2018 Guest Speaker, encouraged hope, sharing of stories, and amplifying voices to 350+ attendees. Successfully advocated for Governor's Ceremonial Proclamation.
Guest Speaker Iraqi Young Leaders Exchange Program:
As a guest panelist for the 2017 Iraqi Young Leaders Exchange program held in Denver, I shared advice, motivation, and spoke about lessons on civic engagement collected as a Youth Commissioner, Senate District 30 Representative, and life experiences. I encouraged emerging leaders from across Iraq to never lose hope, and reminded them of the ripple effects one individual can have, as they seek to implement an action plan in their own country. From that life-changing experience and network to guide, they grew and became leaders in their own countries. Their stories and passion left me inspired to continue to amplify youth voices and actions.
