Written by Isaac Davis:
My name is Isaac Davis; I was born and raised in Sacramento, California. I am currently a rising senior at Laguna Creek High School.
I’m engaged in various groups and organizations at my high school, which allow me to participate in various things that help me grow. For the last six years, I’ve been a member of my school’s Black Student Union. This year, I was elected President, which has helped me achieve my goal of forming a connection with my school’s black population while providing an inclusive and safe environment on campus. In addition, this year, I was the Co-President of HOSA, “Health Occupations Students of America,” I placed first in states for the Public Health event. This event allowed me to develop a comprehensive plan to address the oral health determinants in Sacramento County.
Being a member of this organization allows one to empower, represent, and elevate views, resulting in a more inclusive and open-minded approach to issues. I want to be a member of AccessLocal.TV’s Youth Media Digital Content Production because this organization values communication and responsibility within Sacramento. Two abilities that I aspire to cultivate.
I utilize my communication abilities to interact with others and support them. I use my responsibility abilities to task myself with projects and complete them successfully. By joining this organization, I will be able to underline the shared objective of establishing a link between issues affecting us and the broader Sacramento County community. I can use my experience and abilities to help AccessLocal.TV while also acquiring new skills to strengthen my work ethic. As an involved member and an invested student in the community, I learned to prepare to assist in setting objectives, working on events, and developing new ideas.
Furthermore, I feel we must have a solid working connection with Black male representation in the community. We live in a challenging era where Black agony and suffering are widely visible on social media. Therefore, black individuals must have a venue to speak and receive information and connections to persons who can assist us in better understanding, advocating, and coping.
By embarking on this task, I hope to gain more experience in this industry and develop valuable skills that will benefit me in areas outside this organization.
