Sadie Bograd is a junior from Lexington, KY. She is highly involved with her community, leading work with advocacy groups like the Prichard Committee Student Voice Team and Lexington League of Women Voters. She is also an active member of her school’s speech and debate team and cultural society. Sadie is interested in journalism, history, and international relations. In her free time, she enjoys playing piano, reading, baking gluten-free desserts, and hanging out with her friends and her dog, Georgia.
For Sadie, the most pressing issue facing not just youth but the entire planet is climate change, which poses an existential threat not just to our morality and quality of life but our very survival. Global warming is especially important to younger generations, as adults have persistently refused to heed scientists’ warnings about the need for drastic change, forcing students to take action themselves.
