As someone who has been immersed in the community of PG County, being able to be apart of a thriving, growing family is a treasure. There is a lot of work to be done definitely, but the growth I've seen in my community where I grew up in has truly made me want to make a difference in the lives of those who want to contribute their talents and experiences to the world. There are many opportunities within Prince George's County that are very important to the growth of the family. I would love to see more community outreach opportunities and meetings with communities to help bridge barriers and create successful pathways for students like myself to succeed.

What I would like to see change in Prince George's Country is more opportunities for the youth. Another thing that I would like to see is more women empowerment. Today, I do not see a lot of opportunities and women empowerment. Women are constantly tearing each other down instead of building each other up. When it comes to opportunities for the youth, it is becoming more and more frequent that young people are resulting to drug use and hanging in the streets, promoting more opportunities would possibly eliminate some of this.
I grew up in Prince George's County for 18 years and from my experience it has been good. It wasn't the best nor the worst experience. I liked how PG has teachers who care about their students. At least from the two schools I went to, Beltsville Academy and Eleanor Roosevelt High School, there was a sense of belonging like I could fit in. I would like for PG to lower the tax the parents have to pay. All the money parents have to pay could be used for their son or daughter when going into their first year of college.
