San Francisco, Student
CalSAC Intern | June-July 2018
Annette got their start in youth activism at James Lick Middle School, where they served as the student body president and worked to discontinue their school’s uniform. Three years later, their middle school just wrapped up their first full year with no school uniform, and Annette has spent three fruitful years organizing everything from direct action to poetry nights at Lick Wilmerding High School. They plan to study political science and theory in college, and become a Spanish immersion kindergarten teacher in southern California.
In 2018, Annette interned with CalSAC for 6 weeks to help create a legacy project that honors impactful leaders from CalSAC’s past, promotes reflection and appreciation in CalSAC and other organizations like it, and consolidates CalSAC’s history for use in future projects.
“I was excited to intern with CalSAC because I believe in CalSAC’s goal of supporting adults who are inspiring and mentoring the next generation of activists and leaders.”
