Utic pursues Civic Involvement through Informed Voting as her Community Service Initiative (CSI). She is incredibly passionate about helping people to understand the importance of not only voting but being involved in local government.
Hannah says "Our vote is our voice and too few of us are really using it—of women my age here in the great state of Alaska, less than 5,000 of us are even registered to vote. I am working to change that!! Being your Miss Alaska would give me an even greater platform to do so."
