This is a TED Talk I gave at my school’s TEDx conference on March 26th, 2019 on restoring youth civic engagement.

Here is a quick sample of some of my favorite videos I’ve made. Some are published pieces and some are personal vlogs from my YouTube channel! All of these are pieces that I particularly enjoyed making from start to finish and I hope you enjoy watching!

Here are also the links to some of my favorite articles I’ve written or co-written!
