Attending Saint Ignatius College Preparatory

Hi, my name is Ann. I am currently a senior at Saint Ignatius College Preparatory and I am super excited to be representing District 7. I was born in India and immigrated to the US when I was younger, but San Francisco is the place where I grew up and where I lived out some of my fondest memories. I am a CoChair of my school's social justice club as well as one of the leaders in Students Demand Action at my school. I am the Co-President of Speech and Debate too. I am also a part of the student council and the executive board of the Asian Student Coalition at my school. I have talked at the Ignatian Family Teach-In with Jesuit West CORE, an advocacy group. I have also done a number of presentations and speeches on different social justice issues to help inform my school of what is happening in the world around us.
