What actions are you taking to promote and protect the health and rights of women and young people worldwide?
At my current university, I am a leader of an organization called the Women’s Collective; I conceptualized and am organizing a conference about multiple kinds of systemic privilege. I also participate in NARAL events on campus to promote reproductive health. I also recently mobilized a group of young students to work for a Haiti relief effort.
Academically, as a Psychology major and a Women’s Studies minor, I have devoted my college career to studying stereotyping, prejudice, sexism, and male privilege in hopes of applying theory to catalyze social change.
What is your vision of lasting change for yourself and for the world's young people?
I envision a world where the young generations are passionate about social change and making better societies for all identities to be apart of. For myself, I see continual social justice work in concordance with other young activists.
If you could tell world leaders one thing, what would it be?
I would tell them to work on fixing inequality at an institutional level and then many of the world’s other problems will fix themselves.
