Upcoming Course: Gender Continuum >>>

Anna Redmond

What skills and expertise do you bring to the team?

I am majoring in Psychology and English. I hope to apply what I learn in college to my internship at YES Institute. 

What do you find most rewarding about your internship?

The most rewarding part of my internship is hearing the stories of the other employees and interns here. YES Institute has a diverse community of people from all over the world, all with unique experiences.

What has YES Institute done that you’re particularly proud of?

YES institute strives to make the world a safer place for ALL youth, and also provides both education and support to everyone and anyone who seeks it. 

What learning experience had the biggest impact on who you are now?

Growing up as an equestrian who travelled frequently, I attended two to three schools per yer until my junior year of high school. Through this experience, I met people from all types of backgrounds. I learned from all my moves that as humans, we are more alike than we are different. We all deserve to feel safe and loved.

It’s important for my students to stop and examine the impact of gender and orientation. It’s easy to forget about the real world from the comforts of the classroom.
