My name is Yesenia Montes, and I’m currently running for JSAZ Governor. I have a profound passion for debate - I believe it to be an intellectual form of art in which people get to express themselves openly. JSA promotes such environment - a world in which we meet like minded people who understand the importance of being civically involved; it's a place where I have found my closest of friends, but most importantly, a family that has welcomed and supported me in evolving into the stateswoman I am today. Outside of JSA, I spend my time debating non-JSAers and eventually luring them to JSA. I also absolutely enjoy reading legal thrillers and collecting pocket constitutions, which I now own a total of seven different copies - just a fun fact. I’m insanely obsessed with puppies and toddlers, and not to mention, The Office. I love rainy days as well, as we only receive one per year, and that’s the day you’ll find me ecstatically singing outside.
