Hello! My name is Katrina Sousounis, I am 15 years old, and I am a rising sophmore in high school. I got involved in Girl Up in 5th grade at 11 years old, when I started the first club in Massachusetts, and have been an active member and leader in the Girl Up community ever since.
I love discussing global issues, and possible solutions in order to be a better global citizen. I really enjoy being able to connect with others, and work as a group to make change happen! My goal to achieve women’s rights and equality motivates me every day to help drive this campaign forward.
Outside of Girl Up, I am a member or our school’s quiz bowl team, and get to explore knowledge from a variety of subjects. This past year, I co-chaired two conferences, including the second annual Greater Boston Girl Up summit. I have also been a dancer since I was 2 years old and enjoy the performing arts, including theater. Ballet and pointe are my main dance focusses, and I perform as well as attend summer intensives. In addition, I enjoy the visual arts including painting, sketching, and ceramics. In my free time, I am with friends and family, and love traveling to new places, especially national parks and UNESCO sites. I love talking with people, and just getting to know them better, so I hope I get to meet with all of you as well!
