Last month,  I had the honor to meet Senator Kamala Harris, who graciously took time out of her day to talk one-on-one with me about the power of change one brings to elected office. She reminded me to stay fearless- to walk though every door no matter how hostile, because that’s what advocacy is all about.

As Chief of Staff to the Providence City Council, I always employed that mindset; I never shied away from a tough decision that was in the best interest of city residents.

I plan to take that same ethos to the City Council as an elected official, and am so proud to stand among women like Senator Harris who, no matter how near or far, will always have my back.
