I was raised by a widowed mom who wanted her kids to be the first generation educated. We used government services for food and for educational grants.

Great teachers encouraged me to pursue my dream of writing. Getting a full-ride of scholarships and grants to UW-Madison changed my life.

I believe in government programs that help people build better lives for themselves and their children.
