Name: Evelyn Marino
School: Carpinteria 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.):
Woman’s rights and immigration rights for sure! I feel like these topics get swept under the rug so often, and people often turn to blame for justification on treating people unfairly. Very frustrating and I wish more people would talk about it.
What activities do like to do regularly as a pastime?
I like to do journaling, bike riding, and a lot of baking, these help me maintain a calm mind during these quarantine times.
What clubs/organizations/sports/job are you involved with outside of youth making change?
I'm involved with basketball and cheerleading and I’m currently in a club called CADE, focused on celebrating adversity, diversity, and education.
