“I’m only 16 but I’m a senior in high school. I plan to go to college next year and study political science. That’s my favorite subject. I really want to run for public office someday—maybe congress. I’m not sure I aspire to become president.
The highlight of my life was the two years I lived in Japan with my parents and family. When my Japanese friends learned that I had held a gun and actually shot the gun, they thought I was a monster. Hearing their perspective on gun control was very enlightening especially for someone like me who’s interested in political science and hopefully running for office some day.”
