This week’s accomplished and charming candidates each have impressive and compelling backgrounds, from a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader who uses her platform to avidly support cancer research to a first-generation American who calls Texas home, while keeping her Afghan roots close.
Jacie Scott has used her platform as a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader to support cancer research, a cause that became close to her heart after losing her mother to the disease. The 24 year old, who also teaches classes at The Bar Method, hopes to start a fund in her mother’s honor to benefit pancreatic cancer research with the help of her father, sister, and brother.
Kaitlin Baker’s defining characteristic is her love of people, which has guided her personally and professionally. With a focus on young people, Baker believes it’s important to show teens their uniqueness and worth.
Olivia Zokai’s welcoming demeanor translates into her successful career as a physical therapist. Aside from helping people regain their independence in her professional life, Zokai also serves on DIFFA Dallas’ board of trustees.
As a first-generation American, the sweet, striking, and hilarious Roshana Atiqzoy has grown to love all things Texas. But her family’s Afghan roots are never far from her mind as she often volunteers with the refugee community.
Whitney Linscott has a mind and talent for finance as a financial manager, but she has a heart set on volunteering with people in her community. “My life is very corporate, so getting to do more social work was always something I wanted to do,” says Linscott, who also volunteers with Dallas Court Appointed Special Advocates.
