About Me

My name is Ryan Dennison. I am currently a junior at Valhalla High School. I am very politically active in my community. I volunteer with a State Senator as well as volunteer time to his campaign. I feel that by getting involved in politics, that is my opportunity to help people in a practical way. One day I want to be the President of the United States, because I believe I can actually make a difference and change the country.  In college I want to study business and minor in political science. After school I want to either start my own business or work my way to the top in an existing business so I an earn enough money to run a political campaign. From there I would get involved in local politics and work my way up .
