WHY I'M RUNNING
As a kid growing up in Vegas, I watched my parents work long shifts to provide a better life for our family. They knew that overnight shifts and weekend hours would eventually lead to a better life for their son. The work ethic they instilled in me allowed me to graduate from the valley’s first vocational high school with college prep credits as well as a professional cosmetology license.
After high school, I went to the College of Southern Nevada. But, like so many at 18, I decided I wasn’t ready for a four-year college just yet. Fortunately, I had the skills I needed to support myself thanks to the training I received at my high school and an understanding that hard work pays off. I’m proud to say that 18 years and two careers later, I finally earned my bachelor’s degree in Ministry Leadership in 2019.
I share my education journey because it’s a common one and it’s a journey that is uniquely Nevadan. Our state has always been a place of hope and possibility through non-traditional paths, regardless of your background or circumstances. I’m running for Assembly District 7 to keep fighting for opportunities for all our kids, neighbors, and families to be successful on our own terms. I hope to earn your support.
