  • Jammie Dumolt
    Senior at Red Canyon High School in Eagle, Colorado. Two winters ago, she attended the 55th Status of Women in the World Conference at the United Nations in New York City. She gained knowledge about girls’ and women’s rights issues, how the UN works, policy making, the role of NGOs within the UN system, and how decisions made at the UN translate into on-the-ground changes. Jammie served as a delegate for Girls Learn International, an NGO initiated at RCHS in 2009. She helped draft the Girls' Statement that was presented to the UN Council. The experience was life changing and Jammie hopes to get degrees in Anthropology and Political Science and then become an International Lawyer representing women and girls rights. She asks, "When was the last time you struggled to get basic nutrition let alown have your life threatened just to get to school?"
