Favorite thing about Pensacola:  

How much we value our history. I grew up going to History Camp in Historic Pensacola and love continuing to see our city value our history and find new ways to honor the past inclusively.

Favorite thing about PYP: 

 The opportunity for young adults to learn about our community and be invited to sit at the table

What do you feel YPs can do to be a catalyst for positive change in our community? 

I believe we need more young professionals joining the boards of non-profits big and small. These are the places where YPs can make real change, working side by side with the local experts to see what the issues are in our community.
