Name: Jade Espinoza
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 am most passionate about mental health and women's rights. Mental health impacts people’s lives greatly and I think it's important to make sure it's seen as a priority rather than unimportant. As for women's rights, I feel as if I should be able to make my own decisions on what I decide I want to do with my body. I also highly dislike the wage gap that is mainly due to stereotypes. Not only do I want equality, but I want respect.
What activities do like to do regularly as a pastime?
I like to play/hangout with my fat cats and dog, I normally do this everyday. I also like taking naps, I normally take naps whenever I have time.
What clubs/organizations/sports/job are you involved with outside of youth making change?
I am in Upward Bound, secretary of Latinos Unidos, EAOP, AVID, and Track.
