We love learning from one another, engaging in difficult discussions, and empowering each other to grow from uncomfortability. Meet the people who support students behind the scenes!
Hello! My name is Adrianna (I use sher/her pronouns) and I am the new High School Program Coordinator here at Passion Impact. I’m really excited to be working with Passion Impact and the students at Franklin High School. I grew up in Portland and graduated high school from Reynolds. I went to Oregon State University (go beavs!) where I earned a Bachelor’s of Science in Microbiology and Sociology. While in college I found a passion in social justice advocacy while working at the Cultural Resource Centers on campus. Some other little facts about me, I love to travel and am always listening to music. If you ever see me walking out and about, I’ll most likely have my headphones in bopping around to some music.

Hello, my name is Jorie (she/her/hers). I am currently a junior at James Madison High School. Passion Impact has given me an opportunity to interact with and give back to my community- which has done so much for me. I am thrilled to be able to engage with both students and other members of the Madison/Multnomah community through the foundation of a new P.I. club, volunteer events, and so much more. I believe that human interactions and acts of kindness- whether through communication or volunteering- are two things that this country needs right now.. Madison, with its youth, is a perfect place to start implementing events that bring people together for volunteering and for spreading a communal sense of reliability. A quick fun fact about me is that I am part of the 4-year long biomedical program at Madison. The program, and the teachers who run it, are probably my favorite thing(s) about Madison. The people who are part of the program share a love for science and helping people- which makes the classes a pleasure to be a part of.
