With a focus on reducing voting ages and increased accountability for policymakers around the country, Lila hopes to see a decrease in (and the end of) gun violence, book banning, and anti-LGBTQIA+ legislation, and wants to see gender-affirming care internationally recognized as a basic human right. Lila uses their platform as an avid writer to bring awareness to underrepresented voices and tackle systemic discrimination one story at a time. Lila also loves reading, editing, and revising fiction works, memoirs, and poetry! Encouraged by the professor of their English course at the University of Minnesota, Lila is starting a campaign to bring awareness to the lack of representation the country’s youth have in government and politics, and aims to see their generation be the positive change society needs.
