Blaizen Buckshot Bloom for Conservation Director
I’m Blaizen Buckshot Bloom, a 2021 graduate of Deep Creek High School. In December 2017, I became involved in local politics, initially fighting for solar farms before shifting focus to the rapid, unchecked overdevelopment in southern Chesapeake. Yet, my passion for service continued as I volunteered in my school and community, earning me the President’s Volunteer Service Award in 2018. Two years later, I became a founding fellow of Civic’s Unplugged, an organization dedicated to preparing today’s youth to be tomorrow’s civic leaders. Within the next few months, I became a co-founder and co-leader of Virginia’s chapter of State of the Students, a national, non-partisan organization dedicated to connecting youth with the civic process. Since then, I’ve taken that experience to continue bettering our City by solving the problems in our school system.
