Why are you engaged with the Goldfarb Center?
As a rising senior and co-chair, my engagement with the Goldfarb Center has been central to my Colby experience. I definitely want to continue working with public policy questions in some capacity once my Colby career ends. I am proud of the unique speakers and issues that the board works to present to the Colby community.
What does leadership mean to you as someone on the Goldfarb Student Executive Board?
I have learned so much about critical issues and I am excited to serve as a leader next year, by bringing relevant and captivating programming to Colby. For me, being open-minded and driven is the key to being a good leader. I want to help my peers and classmates turn the Goldfarb center into an organization that fits their needs. As a leader, I hope to support others in making their visions reality.
What do you think is the most interesting thing happening right now in public affairs?
My answer to this question changes all the time, but right now I am interested in exploring questions around wealth inequality in the United States. I think looking into the wealth disparities that exist are central in promoting equity and I hope to bring this issue to the Goldfarb center this year.
Looking ahead, what are you most excited about for this coming year?
I am so excited to work with all of the new members of the Executive Board! I also want to increase engagement with the Goldfarb center; our programming is often relevant to all majors and I want to form more connections across campus!
