Hey there! My name is Abby Chan and I’m currently a Junior at Lincoln East High School. I’m so thankful and honored to serve as the Director of Marketing at the Girl Up Nebraska Coalition for a second term. I’ve been a part of Girl Up LPS since 2017, and I currently serve on the Presidential Team and am the Vice-President of Publicity in Girl Up LPS. Through my time serving, I have been able to work with amazing people and to better my skills as a graphic designer. Girl Up has been an amazing outlet for me to meet new people, learn more about current issues, and work directly to change the status quo of women in our society. Through Girl Up I’ve learned about advocacy and I’ve built connections with so many people. I recently had the opportunity to be a rally organizer for PERIOD for the first ever National PERIOD Day. It connected my love of advocating for what I believe in and an issue I am passionate about.
Outside of Girl Up, I am on the debate team competing both nationally and locally. Last year I was fortunate enough to qualify for Nationals in Texas. I also am a tennis player. I play tennis at Woods Tennis Center as well as for East High School. I enjoy volunteering at organizations, and have been elected as the Vice President of Key Club for the 2019-2020 school year. When I am at home, I enjoy spending time with my guinea pigs, Nori & Nugget.
I’m so excited to see what we will accomplish this year, and I look forward to meet and work alongside some of you in the near future!
