A 2003 Youth Advocate of the Year finalist, Carly leveraged her high school experience into a career advocating for tobacco prevention. She now works with Health Resources in Action, where she serves as Director for The 84 Movement, a statewide movement of youth fighting tobacco in Massachusetts. Carly believes that youth are a key voice in advocating for change.

I knew that young people’s voices actually mattered to legislators.
