I am a graduate of Santa Barbara City College, U.C. Berkeley, and Claremont Graduate University, and have dedicated my education and work to the study of ethics in order to promote a more peaceful, prosperous society.
Recently I ran for California's 37th Assembly District seat. Although I was not elected, the honor of being considered for public office has only strengthened my commitment to service; I strive to cultivate policy designed to inspire and empower all people.
In the spirit of this principle, I am proposing a 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution to make love an unalienable right.

I dare to be a bridge, and not an island.
I dare to listen before I speak.
I dare to think of others before myself.
I dare to strive for equality, justice, and peace in all endeavors.
I dare to love my country and its people fearlessly, and serve the greater good.
I dare to accept and respect all people—
I am a daughter, and a citizen of the United States, with the courage to care.
Dare to care. Do you dare?
