I first heard about BASE from the previous BASE Youth Representative Kylie Hoops. I joined because I wanted a fun way to meet new people and be more involved with the community. I also didn’t like some of the choices people around me were making and wanted a way to change that and raise awareness about various issues that Evansville teens are facing.
My favorite part about BASE so far is being able to stay up to date on the most recent community events and projects and being able to help with these events. Even though I haven’t been a part of base long I feel like I’ve already gained confidence in public speaking and more responsibility. I’m looking forward to continuing working closely with the other members of BASE to improve the Evansville community as much as I can.
