Attending Lowell High School

Astrid Utting is a senior at Lowell High School. She co-founded and leads Youth for San Francisco (@youth4sf), a youth-led advocacy organization dedicated to giving San Francisco high school students the tools and confidence to engage in local politics and civic engagement issues. She is also a member of the San Francisco Women’s Political Committee PAC Committee, Lowell School Site Council student representative, and previously wrote a teen column for her local newspaper, The Noe Valley Voice.
She began her involvement in local politics after witnessing how much of an impact local policies and leaders have on San Franciscan’s daily life and the critical role youth can play. She enjoys exploring the city, cozying up with a good book (Or in reality a good TV show….), and baking.
