Undergraduate Student – Materials Science & Engineering, she/her/hers
- UC Davis
Annie Wang is a fourth year Materials Science & Engineering student. After an incident during freshman chemistry lecture, and discovering that many peers shared similar struggles, she co-founded the Davis chapter of PERIOD, a non-profit dedicated to menstrual health. She now leads, #FreeThePeriodCA, a coalition of students advocating for free menstrual products in campus bathrooms as a basic necessity, just like toilet paper! In addition to periods, Annie likes thinking about environmentally sustainable materials and the power of visual media to make people laugh, cry, and reflect. She also enjoys a good breakfast burrito and running in the sunset.
