Keira fell in love with JSA her freshman year when she discovered the passion, level of civic engagement, and care that other high schoolers had for the world around them. But it was ultimately the people of JSA that have made her experience unforgettable. And the friends she has made that have furthered her care for the organization. In her sophomore year, she joined cabinet as a deputy director of debate and served as a chapter officer. She is also a graduate of Montezuma Leadership Summit. In her junior year, she served as her chapter’s president and as one of the Southern California Directors of Debate.
Keira is also a part of her school’s Academic Decathlon and golf teams, and can often be found discovering new music and books. This coming year in SoCal, Keira hopes to strengthen individual chapters, establish stronger regions, and diversify statewide activities to include more leadership opportunities and accessibility for regular JSAers.
