Carrboro Student Named ANNpower Fellow
Tali Tudryn, a junior at Carrboro High School, is one of 50 young women across the country selected as a 2013 ANNpower Fellow, which recognizes youth for their leadership potential and commitment to creating positive social change.
“I am really passionate about women’s issues and rights and social justice here in the United States,” she says. “I am in my school’s Global Poverty Reading Group, and we have learned a lot about fighting global poverty. One day I hope to travel to every country in the Middle East extensively.”
Tali recently participated in the ANNpower Vital Voices Leadership Forum, a comprehensive training and mentorship program in Washington, D.C., that exposed ANNpower Fellows to new perspectives and equipped them with the skills to transform their own communities and beyond. During the forum, the youth met with internationally renowned women leaders, including Hillary Clinton and Valerie Jarrett, senior advisor to President Barack Obama.
