If there were a leadership yearbook, what would your yearbook superlative be and why?

Most likely to recruit members

What is one of your proudest leadership moments during the past year and why? Feel free to share more than one.

The proudest moment I had in the past year was being able to share my personal story with the U.S. Senator, and have him agree to support home care workers.

Looking ahead to this year, what do you want to be the next step in your development as a leader? How will that step help our movement for economic and racial justice?

The next step is getting my voice heard about the importance of unity. Building unity is how we lower racial barriers and help our economy as a whole.
