Supporting comments: "Her identity and passions are known to everyone – she literally wears them on her vast selection of creative t-shirts! Her advocacy for gay rights through spear heading “safe zone” training is a huge lasting contribution to our community. Her commitment to the environment is evidenced not only in her involvement but also in her personal choices. In addition to her work as president in the Student Global Aids Campaign, she implemented a program to educate teenagers at a low-income after-school program on comprehensive sex education and positive relationships. A capable and compassionate leader, she has led by example and has inspired and motivated those around her."
