[Being involved means] you know your community more.
What exactly do you do with CCAR?
I’m on the Political Action Committee.
How did you get involved with CCAR?
They were here during orientation. I saw Tyler at the table and I’m like, “Oh! This is interesting.” Signed my name and when I got here in September got an email for an interview and then I’m here.
Why did you decide to work with them?
I wanted to do stuff while I’m here. I wanted to figure out what I’m trying to do so I guess being in CCAR excited me.
What does being involved in your community mean to you?
I think you know your community more. You know who the people are, what they do, how the whole community runs.
How important is that to you?
It’s always been important to me to be involved in my community.
What does CCAR itself mean to you?
I think it just means to get involved.
What are some things you’ve done with CCAR?
Since election day was yesterday*, we just finished what I recently worked on which is basically voter [education]. It was who was running, what they’re doing and all that.
We are so excited to see everything that Alexis does during her time here at Pace and working with CCAR. Keep an eye on the blog for news from Alexis.
* This interview took place on November 8, 2017.
