Despite leaning substantially left, I considered myself as an independent until college. When Trump started his campaign, I began to experience racism on campus from people who now felt that it was acceptable. This pivotal moment challenged me to use my voice to stand up for what I believe. For almost 3 years, I’ve been living in the Caribbean studying for my Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine. This election cycle, my younger brother became active in politics. Just like me, he has a passion for justice. When he hears Bernie speak, it fans the flames of his spirit. His devotion for Bernie Sanders has inspired me to finally register as a Democrat and I voted in the DA primary. Even though Sanders has suspended his campaign, I would be honored to be a DA delegate and vote for him at the National Convention, to further the fight for justice.
