What are you most excited to do as an officer?

I'm most excited to connect better with the WJCL community, to make the WJCL Constitution a stronger document, and to encourage enthusiastic members of the WJCL to join the executive board.

What new initiatives do you plan to pursue?

Among other things, we're passing new procedures for selecting Wisconsin Certamen teams, connecting with other states' parliamentarians, and taking a closer look at online voting at different levels at WJCL State Convention. The Crash Course Constitution is also making headway.

Do you have any advice for future candidates?

Don't have any doubts and just run! Think of creative solutions to the problems that all chapters experience, and reach out to everyone when considering solutions to them.

What 3 things would you take to a desert island besides food and water?

I'd take The Aeneid by Vergil, Topics in Algebra by I.N. Hernstein, and my iPhone.

Skittles or M&Ms?
