Charlotte Collins

YDCC PARLIMENTARIAN

Hello my name is Charlotte and I would like to give you some background on me. I was born in Atlanta, Georgia and was raised in Cobb County. I attended Kell High School and graduated in 2009. I attended Chattahoochee Tech to major in early childhood education. I did not complete college so I started working in childcare for five years mostly with infants which was my calling for so long and I loved it. I do not have a political background but earlier this year I went to a picnic and made the decision within myself that I want to be involved in my community as well as be an advocate.
