"One of my best qualities as an individual is that I am always open to constructive criticism. I have learned it's impossible to be perfect. Thus, it is impossible to be a perfect candidate or even a perfect observer. However, I believe my ability to take constructive criticism and use it to fit the needs of the UUA will prove to be beneficial for both members and youth alike. Just as I am committed to Unitarian Universalism and the principles it stands for, I am also committed to being a representative of the youth for the UUA Board and General Assembly. I look forward to being a part of the dialog, which will shape the future of our denomination."

"My interest in serving on the UUA Board of Trustees stems from my passion of working to foster and assist the growth of social change and the expansion of the youth revolution. Through my experience serving the youth governance of our faith; I have gained the insight and understanding of the many challenges and opportunities that our faith leadership grapples with on an ongoing basis. I believe that in order to have a successful, relevant, and vital board; we must have all voices heard. most importantly the youth. If elected to the Board of Trustees, I promise to bring a deep commitment to the work of the Board and to build a vibrant voice for all Unitarian Universalist Youth, everywhere."
