On his future and purpose: I have become increasingly curious about the way community and identity intersect with political and economic outcomes. I hope to study the rural-urban divide and understand the communication challenges, as well as solutions to keep close-knit communities strong. I believe their future prosperity is essential to the long-term sustainability of our state. I hope to gain a graduate degree in public policy within the UNC-system to study this issue.
