Kasey has been an active JSA member of her high school chapter since 2020. She joined JSA because she wanted to become more civically engaged and explore youth involvement in politics.

Outside of JSA, Kasey is actively involved in Key Club, California High School Democrats, and Echo Initiative. She is passionate about spreading awareness of the injustices that elderly immigrants face because they often lack the necessary platform to voice their challenges and advocate for themselves. Kasey looks forward to attending college and earning a degree in political science and pursuing law after graduating.
