Hi folks! This is Annie. I will be your Vice President of Finance and Services this year. This year I will continue my initiatives that center intersectional experiences for marginalized members. I hope to expand services on holistic health and wellness and food security. An interesting fact about myself. I recently discovered what a “fandom community” is, and that I was unknowingly participating in them for most of my life, starting in the early days of Harry Potter. Which makes me feel like I’ve been living under a rock. Maybe you will feel the same way about me after reading my bio ;). I hope I can get to meet you in person sometime this year. Feel free to always drop by to say hello at the CESAX office, at the 3rd floor of 55 Gould Street!!
