I'm originally from a military town in Maryland. Although I live abroad, I'm more passionate than ever about imparting tangible improvements in the way citizens and immigrants alike are treated and taken care of in the U.S. I've seen how divisive our current leadership is and the fears that resulted in his election. People are longing for a trustworthy and transparent administration that puts their needs first. My friend can't afford to work because child care is too expensive, I understand what it's like to live in pain because I don't have health care, and I've seen the importance of building communities by investing in their access to education. This is why I support Bernie Sanders and would like to represent him as a delegate. It's time to rebuild trust and enact impactful change. With your vote I hope to be a catalyst for that during the Convention.
