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.
They are interning with CalSAC because they believe in CalSAC’s goal of supporting the adults who are inspiring and mentoring the next generation of activists and leaders.
Annette is helping CalSAC to 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
