Starting my journey at American University, I was given the opportunity to join the School of Public Affairs Leadership Program. This extraordinary program consists of making lifelong friends and creating/implementing social action projects. For my first year, I was grouped with 5 other talented young ladies. Our social action project was dedicated to Black and Brown students who were affected by the achievement gap.

During the implementation of our project, I created an Instagram account so we can give information about the college process and financial aid. We all created posts for the Instagram account, about 2-3 times a month. I also decided to work for the Raising a Village Foundation to tutor students in marginalized communities. Tutoring the students of RAV had such a positive impact on me I decided to go a step further and lead my group into the process of donating supplies to over 200 students.
