Name: Allie Cabiles
School: Ernest Righetti High School
What issue area are you most passionate about? Which do you know the most about? (Immigration, environment, woman’s rights, mental health, LGBTQ rights, etc.):
I'm most passionate about mental health because there are so many simple steps we could take to better mental health and hugely improve so many people's quality of life from the inside out.
What activities do like to do regularly as a pastime?
I enjoy playing tennis with my family, reading, playing my piano and guitar, and spending time with my friends. I do these things almost daily - whenever I can find the time :).
What clubs/organizations/sports/job are you involved with outside of youth making change?
I swim for Santa Maria Swim Club, a competitive swim team - we regularly compete at the regional level and sometimes compete at the national level. We even sent two swimmers to Olympic Trials this past year. I swam on Righetti's swim team last year too; we won the CIF Division II Championships. I also am an officer of Righetti's A Helping Hand club, where we focus on giving back to the community youth.
Is there anything else that you would like people to know about yourself?
I'm very excited to be on the board for Youth Making Change this coming year and be able to serve our community.
