Name: Kim Mendoza
School: San Marcos High School
What issue area are you most passionate about and Why? (Immigration, environment, woman’s rights, mental health, LGBTQ rights, etc.):
I am extremely passionate about all of the topics listed in the question but I feel that environmental justice currently stands out the most because of many of the natural disasters that have occured in 2020 and 2021. I think that the first thing we need to start working on is our home, our planet without a planet we wouldnt be able to resolve any other issues that face our world today.
What activities do like to do regularly as a pastime?
In my free time I like to scrapbook, color, and listen to music!
What clubs/organizations/sports/job are you involved with outside of youth making change?
I play Lacrosse for my school and I hope that I will be able to join more clubs during the school year
Is there anything else that you would like people to know about yourself?
I am a very good listener and tend to be more observant than outspoken but am also able to speak deeply on the topics that peak my interest. I love to talk about psychology and the way that our society not only today can impact many minds and lives. I would love to further my knowledge and hope that being a junior this year can help guide me towards similar career options.
