New York State Model Senate Session Project Participants/Videos 2011
The Stellar Six participate in a debate on the important issue of redistricting New York State.
||Enoch Sowah (D, WF) represented District 21 and sat in the seat of New York State Senator Kevin S. Parker. Enoch debated diligently on the floor for a plan to redistrict the state “right now” and not “ten years from now.” He made a strong case that the Senate had an obligation to immediately serve their constituents, by being forthright and honest and taking action to implement a plan that would redistrict the state fairly and not based on the notion that certain redistricting could offer better election results. Enoch’s debate was so compelling that he was featured in the Albany Times Union Newspaper. Enoch is from Ghana, West Africa and has a desire to eliminate corruption from politics all over the world. He is an active member in the Hostos Student Leadership Academy as an Ambassador and he was a member of a team of students who participated in the National Model United Nations in spring 2011, representing Burkina Faso in New York. Enoch is a 2011-2012 Kaplan Leadership Program Fellow and has plans to study at Harvard when he graduates.
