Civic engagement among youth. As young adults, we need to put an emphasis on learning about local ogvernment and its functions, as well as how to vote. Too often we forget that one of the most powerful ways to make our voices heard is to show up at the polls and speak to our representatives!

How active the youth of our city is in terms of local government/politics! It is so refreshing to see so many young people getting involved in local issues as well as take initiative (organizing community events, protests, and reaching out to local politicians to help better our city).

If I could change one thing in the world it would be...

The lack of love and empathy we have for each other. In today's political climate especially, compassion is missing greatly.

My favorite thing about Wichita is...
It is a really nice suburb. You can feel like you're in the middle of a big, busy city one minute, but then drive a few miles and find yourself in the middle of nowhere (that's where the stars are amazing).                   

If I could change one thing in the world it would be...

The shortage of jobs. Especially in today's time, people need to be able to earn money and care for themselves and their family. It would be ideal if everyone could have that opportunity and not worry about taking a position someone else might need more.
