Rosie Yanowitch

 2022-23 Rising Voices Fellow Rosie Yanowitch

Rosie Yanowitch is a senior at University High School in San Francisco, California. She is deeply passionate about the intersections of feminism, Judaism, revisionist history, and racial justice. Accessibility within education has always been a priority for Rosie, and she helps direct a financial aid team at an education technology startup, Curious Cardinals, as well as a Bay Area-based nonprofit, Tipping Point Community, to address the intersections of education, poverty, and racial justice in her own community. In school, Rosie plays field hockey, works on building and implementing restorative justice systems, and is a member of various feminist and female empowerment initiatives. She is also a madricha (youth counselor) at her local synagogue. In her free time, you can find her trying a new coffee shop, hiking or backpacking with friends, lounging at the beach, or letting her two dogs run circles around her.
