SHE VOTES Fellows
We are very excited to introduce our first-ever SHE VOTES fellows! SHE VOTES Fellows are selected from a competitive set of applicants from all over the US. In an effort to close the gap of income inequality in college interships and fellowships, they and are given a stipend for their work. Leading up to Election Day, Fellows work on their respective college campus to register, inform, organize, and mobilize young women voters.

2022 SHE VOTES Fellows
Haelee Kim is a nineteen-year-old from California and a current student at Vanderbilt University in Tennessee. She is pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Law, History, and Society and minors in French and Asian Studies. As a second-generation Korean American born to immigrant parents, she grew up intuitively aware of the values of citizenship, as well as the power and privileges of voting. This eventually led her to Know Your Rights, a program she co-founded to provide free community workshops on voting rights and local registration information before the 2020 election. She remains committed to the effort of voter mobilization and fighting against voter suppression, and is very excited to discover more ways to help the communities that she belongs in.
Diana Garcia Ornelas is a nineteen-year-old Arizona native and incoming senior at Northern Arizona University pursuing a bachelor's degree in Strategic Leadership.
Her passion for advocacy began four years ago upon finding out that undocumented and DACA students graduate Arizonan high schools without access to instate tuition or public scholarships, her sister being one of them. Since Diana has worked on a campaign to provide a solution to this issue.
Through her involvement in the community, she realized how vital it is to mobilize voters, especially the youth. During the 2020 election, she worked on a GOTV campaign to mobilize 25,000 young Latinx voters in AZ. Diana is excited to start this journey as a SHE VOTES fellow to continue emphasizing the importance of voting.
