Charlotte Massey is a sophomore feb from Leavenworth, Washington. She enjoys academic breadth, but is particularly interested in political science and international relations. Specifically, she is concerned with the intersection of academic thought and the global distribution of privilege and poverty, with particular interest in marginalized groups and social justice.
Charlotte is the Founder and President of Articulate, a non-profit program that uses art as a tool for social change. Articulate promotes empathy across societal barriers and empowers people to speak out through the creation of cause-focused visual art. Much of this art is then used by partner non-profits to increase awareness about important issues. Charlotte also runs her own art business, Charred Latte Art, and sells her original art products in stores and online. Charlotte is an ANNpower Fellow, Grantee and Global Delegate and has attended conferences in Washington, DC, and London, England, through the Fellowship. She is also an alumna of the Alene Moris National Education for Women’s Leadership Institute, a program that increases women’s representation in leadership positions in the nonprofit, private and political sectors.
