A native of the Chicago suburbs, Ainsley Barrett is a current junior at Carl Sandburg High School. Ainsley dedicates most of her time to public service and civic engagement--working closely with local volunteer efforts and on her school's equity board to converse about necessary administrative changes. Ainsley is also the USG of Logistics for her school's Model UN program, a player on her varsity tennis team, a writer for her school's newspaper, and a member of several honors societies. She hopes to study foreign affairs and economics in the future. A 2020 graduate of Running Start's high school program, Ainsley is eager to spend the rest of her life impacting the world through positive action, compassion, and empathy in all fields
