YouthCharge – Race/Equity B Board

BOARD MEMBERS

I’m Mateo Brown and an issue that is important to me is equal funding for primary and secondary schools to ensure that all students will be able to set a foundation for their life. Something that I wish others knew is that pickles are awful!

I have been in many leadership activities, I care most about inequality, to say the least, and I wish people knew I’m not as mean as I look

I was born and raised in Denver, Colorado with hopes to travel the world one day. Also, I absolutely love dumplings! The largest issue for me is the human rights violations being done by people with authority. We must help each other!

I am Nicole, a senior at Cherokee Trail High School. I play tennis and volunteer as a small group leader.

My name is Emily Nguyen and I am a senior in high school. One issue that’s really important to me is child abuse. Abuse isn’t just physical, but it’s also emotional, and I feel as though that’s not showcased enough in the media.

Me: Senior at CU Boulder majoring in Computer Science. #1 Issue: Education because quality education creates many opportunities. Something to know: My long-term goals are to work in the education nonprofit space.

Hi! My name is Selihom Yosief and I’m a current senior in high school. I am deeply passionate about racial equity in all institutions (education, healthcare, politics, etc) and I love Marvel/DC movies.

The 2020-2021 cohort is currently assessing community needs.
