Phaedra Parks is more than her #fixitjesus punchlines and reality TV status.

The Georgia Peach plans to run for office.

“I always thought I would be the insurance commissioner, but then when I got into practicing law, things just evolved, and next thing I know, I’m in this entertainment field,” Parks told theGrio. “I love politics. I think politicians heal the community through their efforts in the legislation to pass laws that can help the people. Politics definitely plays its role.”

We think it’s awesome that she plans to use this platform to make real change in our communities.

“I’m very much so connected to politicians, and my own aunt was the first woman and person of color to be elected into politics in Hall County. So I come from a very political family,” she explained.
