Who We Are
Founded By and For Teens
Hello! My name is Charlotte Hampton, and I’m a senior at the High School of American Studies at Lehman College in New York. I live on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, and I love American history, dancing, writing, and reading (currently reading Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie!). I am interested in advocating for press freedom because it’s a cornerstone of democracy and integral to disseminating truth. Both my parents are journalists, and so I’ve grown up in a household that places a great value on current affairs.
I'm Isabel, a senior at the High School of American Studies at Lehman College in New York. I live in the West Village of Manhattan and love running, reading, exploring gardens, and petting dogs. I believe in defending press freedom because I believe in defending the truth and our right to know the truth. Press freedom is a crucial pillar of our democracy that allows us to hold power accountable, engage in free dialogue, and share our ideas and perspectives. With press freedom in retreat globally, it's now more important than ever that we stand up for it.
