Statement: I find that in every election cycle we tend to become insular in our thoughts about democracy. Traveling out of the country for the past few years has opened my eyes to different systems of democracy - not just the polarized two-party one we are accustomed to.  Among others, the largest democracy in the world (India) uses indelible ink to fight against voter fraud. This semi permanent mark should be worn as a proud symbol that you have voted for what you think is right. I hope that this design will make people think outside of the box, and the country, to build a better infrastructure for democracy.

My mother was the most compassionate person I’ve ever known. Because of her, growing up in our house, it was only natural that you treated people how you wanted to be treated. She taught me that every living thing deserves respect and peace no matter the difference between race, sexual preferences, gender, disabilities, religions, and even how we treat the planet. This is how I live my life because it makes the most sense to me. What makes absolutely no sense to me, however, is that we have a candidate for presidency who disrespects all aspects of life and is leading a campaign based on hatred. This election means the difference between getting knocked back down into a world where people are oppressed for having the wrong skin color or the wrong god or standing up for what’s right and moving forward to ensure equality for all without fear of choosing a life partner or which bathroom to use, to say the least.
