But what really drives me is the belief that everyone should feel safe, included, and heard in school. I love empowering and encouraging people to use their voices positively to represent others. Being a part of Student Voice has helped me develop my confidence, public speaking, social skills, leadership, and teamwork. My dream for Student Voice is to expand its reach so that more students can benefit from this empowering initiative. I am genuinely proud of what our team has accomplished so far, and am super excited to work with the new Student Voice Team in 2023 ! Let's make an even bigger impact together! 🚀​​​
