Katie Jain is an 18-year-old senior in high school from Princeton, NJ. She joined Redefy because the issues within America and the world—the murders of innocent black men, the disappearances of indigenous women, the hate crimes towards trans people, the crippling wealth inequality, and the discrimination and micro-aggressions that marginalized populations face every day—are a direct result of ignorance and our inability to hold those in charge accountable. To Katie, spreading awareness, learning to see different perspectives, and empowering younger generations to take action against oppression is the first step towards justice.
At her school, Katie is the Editor-in-Chief of her school newspaper, the Spokesman, as well as an active participant in her high school's Model UN and Mock Trial teams. When not fueling her Netflix addiction, Katie can be found asleep with her dogs, listening to music, or curled up reading.
