About the Speaker: Tristan Eddy
Tristan (she/her) became passionately committed to youth rights and advocacy work during three independent trips to Africa where she studied the sociological correlation between female empowerment and microlending. Inspired by the children she encountered during her travels, she returned to the states to pursue a career centered on helping young people overcome the obstacles that stand in the way of opportunity. More specifically, she is interested in how systems and policies affect the healthy development of girls, especially at the intersections of race, gender identity and socioeconomic status. As Program Coordinator, Tristan advances the Coalition’s mission by developing programs that give girls in Washington state a platform to voice their experiences and influence policies that impact their lives. Tristan holds a B.A. in Sociology from the University of Puget Sound and an M.A. in International Studies from the University of San Francisco. Outside of work, she is a cardio kickboxing instructor, avid hiker and dog enthusiast.
