"Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see." – Hebrews 11:1
I have been a member of Students Working Against Tobacco (SWAT) for two years, and currently serve as the vice president of my county chapter. My involvement in SWAT is motivated by the fact that it utilizes proactive youth who are passionate about ending the terror of big tobacco companies. It establishes policies of health and wellness that will have lasting effects for years to come. I love facilitating ideas and taking part in resolutions that will benefit our society. One policy in particular that I would like to focus on in the coming year is secondhand smoke, especially its effects in multiple housing units such as apartment buildings. These past years in SWAT have allowed me to interact with so many amazing people, all working toward a healthier world free of tobacco. In my personal life, I love spending time with family and friends. I’m an active member of my church and enjoy playing volleyball. I am so proud to be on your SWAT Youth Advocacy Board!
