High School: Highlands High School, Fort Thomas, Ky.

Year in School: Senior

Where do I possibly start? I’m an active journalist for my school’s newspaper, The Hilltopper, and the yearbook, Highlander, in our journalism class. I work on the Highlands Daily as an anchor and field reporter.

Currently I am running for Fort Thomas City Council. I believe that kids need to start taking an active part in city/ government matters so that every age group is involved in the decision that affects everyone. Besides, today’s learners are tomorrow’s leaders!

I am an Eagle Scout of Troop 70 out of St. Thomas Church. For my project I did a re-route of the Historic Landmark Tree Trail located in Tower Park next to Carmel Manor. I invite you to go and hike it and enjoy the beauty of the outdoors while learning about certain trees and local history.

Whenever I have a chance to, I volunteer Mondays and Fridays at the Holy Family Food Pantry with my sister and my grandmother.

My favorite social media would probably be Facebook, just because I’m on it the most and can be reached from anyone of any age.

My dream job is to be governor of Kentucky.

One interesting fact about me would be that I wear bow ties every Tuesday
