Karen Stout is a graduating senior at UC Santa Cruz pursuing a B.A. in Legal Studies with an interest in both law and politics. She became passionate about policy during her time as a legislative intern in the UC Sacramento program and is currently a member of the Spring 2021 UCDC cohort. Karen hopes to spend her time as a RepresentWomen intern learning more about ranked-choice voting and gaining more tools to help better advocate for women’s rights. She is also deeply committed to her studies and hopes to work in state government and attend law school in the future. When not focusing on work she enjoys reading on her balcony or building her plant collection.
