Business & Economics
The first priority of the General Assembly is to pass the state budget. My mission is to ensure funds are allocated to communities for:
- Small business development
- STEAM "Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math"
- Agriculture-based workforce development programs
We also need to increase funding for extra-curricular activities for impoverished youth, initiate a high-school pipeline to the public- service state program and have more effective and transparent lines of communication for delivering resources to those that need them most.

Youth & Family Empowerment
I grew up in an area known to some as "The Bluff." 20 years later, my community is the same. I'm running for CHANGE! Georgia needs NEW EFFECTIVE LEADERSHIP.
As a big sister, I saw the challenges my younger brother Scott had seeking employment after college, and I see my younger cousins that have the same challenges. As a shared community lets work together to help Georgia children.
Our children deserve resources that make them competitive with children in other countries. For example, other countries teach multiple languages and have surpassed our highest technology standards in the Georgia curriculum. Georgia children need to know what awaits them. Industry 4.0 has taught us that our children will develop the robots that will perform the surgeries doctors once did.
Youth empowerment helps every community and gives children productive things to do. Family empowerment builds strong households. Resources for parents are important as well. In order to have impactful results, we need sustainable solutions to continue to grow our economy. See how Georgia schools are ranked here.
The American is a new man, who acts upon new principles; he must, therefore, entertain new ideas, and form new opinions. Here individuals of all nations are melted into a new race of men, whose labors and posterity will one day cause great changes in the world. An immigrant when he first arrives no sooner breathes our air than he forms new schemes, and embarks in designs he never would have thought of in his own country. He begins to feel the effects of a sort of resurrection; hitherto he had not lived, but simply vegetated; he now feels himself a man. Judge what an alteration there must arise in the mind and thoughts of this man; his heart involuntarily swells and glows; this first swell inspires him with those new thoughts which constitute an American.
