Cora Dow was born and raised in Sitka and graduated from Sitka High School in 2020. Throughout high school, she became interested in policy through an externship with Representative Jonathan Kreiss-Tomkins, a University of Alaska Southeast environmental policy class, and debate. In 2019, she co-founded Youth for Sustainable Futures, a youth-led group dedicated to educating, motivating, and advocating for a sustainable future for Alaska. Now after her first year attending Bowdoin College, she is hoping to use her experiences to advocate for improved climate change education. Cora is working with SCS again this summer.
In her free time, Cora enjoys hiking, birding, and taking photos around beautiful Sitka.
