Describe your volunteer work with DA and cite your greatest DA accomplishment. 

Years ago I was involved in minority rights programs.

Why are you running for this office? 

I firmly believe the Democratic Party can change the USA. In this crucial moment we need a vision for the next 20 years and our presence abroad is fundamental for this change seeing that overseas there is an additional perspective of alternative ideas and prospects.

How will your skill sets and experience contribute to DA’s success? 

I have a wide experience of inter country relations and living experience.

Are there any DA organizational or practical issues (not political goals) that you would like to address, should you be elected? 

We need to fight against all forms of racism and discrimination, protect voting rights, get the vote out and increase voting participation.

What are three pressing political issues that you would work to include in the DA 2020 Platform and why? 

Make DA be more representative and try and get elected members abroad

How can Democrats Abroad best raise our profile among American voters abroad and better work to elect Democrats?

Marketing, affiliations with other organizations, more grass root events
