Annie Poole is a 10th grader at Mercer Island High School. She is part of Grrl Active because she wants to use media and art as a way to make change and comment on issues that face teens everyday. Grrl Active has allowed her to connect with local artists and activists, as well as provided her with a leadership role and opportunities to express herself. She is very passionate about gender equality and exploring intersectional feminism. She is looking forward to covering Bumbershoot with Reel Grrls this year and interviewing different artists and festival-goers about their views on feminism to further understand the different inequalities within the music industry.
