Kelly Trujillo (she/her)

Kelly was raised in Corcoran, California and attended Corcoran High School. In 2018, Kelly received her Associate’s degree in Sociology from College of the Sequoias. Two years later she began her Bachelor’s degree in Sociology at Chico State and was lucky enough to be part of a research group that studied the effects of student debt on current college students. Being a lifelong learner, Kelly chose to return to get her Master’s degree in Sociology at Arizona State University where she is currently studying social justice and diversity. 

When Kelly was in high school, she felt there were not enough advocates for students like herself. Because of this, she gained a deep passion for working and advocating for young people. Kelly has worked in education from 2016-2023 primarily at schools with underrepresented populations. Her time in education has highlighted a need within the surrounding communities for young people to feel connected with their communities. She hopes to provide all young people with an advocate that will help them gain entry into the spaces where they can use their voices. 

In her free time, Kelly enjoys traveling, doing photography, and spending time with her favorite people.
