I am a sophomore at University Wisconsin-Oshkosh majoring in Political Science and minoring in English. Being surrounded by politics my entire life has driven my interest in wanting to make the United States live up to its full potential. I understand just how important the activity at a state level is in order for a country to be influenced as a whole.
I grew up in Seymour, Wisconsin. The city of Seymour may be small, but it has played a large role in my life in becoming who I am today with the encouragement of my family. Ever since I was a baby, my family has always made a habit to make trips to our cottage up north. Being able to go up north has allowed my family and me to enjoy the activities that typical Wisconsinites enjoy – biking, snowmobiling, boating, fishing, and more. All of these have a common theme, nature. Being able to share these experiences with my family and friends has driven my appreciation for the value of not only the environment, but for life as well. In order for us to maintain this value, it is important for the people of Wisconsin to work together to preserve the glorious environment of the outdoors among us.
I am a conservation voter because everyone in the state of Wisconsin deserves an equal opportunity to have a say in what is important to them. This means that being a conservation voter allows my voice to be heard to help make a difference in preserving the beautiful outdoors of Wisconsin!
