The youngster sat down for an interview with Fox 5 to discuss the meaning of his new role and his future career plans. 

"So I was on the student government for the past year. Coming up to April when it’s time to run, I felt like I wanted to amplify the voices of the underserved communities on campus, especially students of color. So being the first black president, I feel like I’m in a position where I can really do that," Greene shared with regards to his new involvement in the student government. Moreover, he emphasized on the positivity his win symbolized and that Yale University had made significant progress in the past few years.
