Arati Warrier (she/they) is a former high school educator, current writer and organizer, and forever champion of young people and their voices. She graduated from the University of Texas, Austin in 2016 with a double major in English and Asian American Studies and a minor in Education. While teaching, Arati also worked with young people in a multitude of contexts, from coaching poetry slam teams to helping organize Bay Area Solidarity Summer (solidaritysummer.org). She is excited to bring her education, experience, and ENTHUSIASM to her role as the San Francisco Program Manager.
Arati is a cheerleader at heart and often just as excited to talk about line breaks in poems, skin care routines, astrology, and her pets as she is about building relationships with young people and facilitating spaces for them to feel empowered and succeed as leaders.
