My Top 3 Priorities

  • Promote and implement a single-payer system (universal healthcare)
  • Expand funding for public education including pre-schools
  • Create a tuition free UC and CSU system for all California residents

Experience

Biography

Born and raised in the Bay area with the knowledge that has come from living here. I know the issues that we have ahead of us, because I have personally lived through them. I know the troubles that face public education such as funding that had left our schools sometimes without the necessities such as plain paper and books or even elective arts. I have worked a diverse background from being an restaurant barista and UX designer to being part of a start-up and eventually becoming a small business entrepreneur myself in San Francisco. I know the debts that college graduates face, because I am myself a student. I have experienced first hand how financially crippling a hospital visit can be for a simple emergency check up, even with good health insurance.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

I believe in representing the people, not a single party. My goal is to have equal opportunities and equality under the law for all. I will choose the people of my district and California above any party's opinion.
