My name is Srihita Raju and I am a digital marketing intern with ACT United! I got involved with ACT United when I created a Community Awareness project for my high school’s DECA chapter. After working with ACT United, I decided I didn’t want to stop raising awareness there. This fall, I will be a freshman at the University of Minnesota TC, and I will be studying marketing at the Carlson School of Management. Outside of school, I like reading, creative writing, cooking, staying active, and spending time in Minneapolis. In the future, I hope to continue my work fighting against human trafficking in my community, as well as getting involved in community efforts to improve education and health services for young people or people in poverty. Being a part of ACT United has taught me the importance of seeking out information and actively learning about the world around me in order to best apply the skills I have to fight for change. I think everyone should put effort into educating themselves in order to contribute back to their communities, and I am so excited that I get to do that with ACT United!
