Q: Why did you want to run for the office you now hold?

There are many reasons why I ran for Chief but the main one is to give back to our Lodge. I owe a lot of who I became today to our Camp and to our Lodge. I remember being that 11 year old new member who didn't know anything about the OA. But my friends took me and showed me the ropes. Without my friends being there to first off elect me into the OA and then show me what it meant to be in the OA I know that I would have turned out very differently. I ran because I wanted every new member of our lodge to have the fun experiences and once in a life time opportunities that I have had and to continue our Anpetu-We Legacy. 

Q: What's your favorite thing about OA? Wow what a tough one. So much to choose from, the Wednesday night call outs, to the ceremonies, to the projects that we see completed. If I had to pinpoint one thing I'd say my favorite thing about OA is the people you meet. You never know who you are going to talk to at an event. It could be an old timer who will tell you stories of the lodge from years ago or you could wind up talking to a new Ordeal member about his call-out night. Its amazing the diversity in our lodge and the stories if you just take the time to listen.
