Jenna is a sophomore at Kent Place School from Scotch Plains, New Jersey. She holds a deep passion for criminal justice reform and LGBTQ+ equality and aspires to create change in her community in support of these movements. Jenna takes action in her community by traveling as a Youth Advocate for the New Jersey Center for Tourette’s syndrome, giving presentations on the dangers of bullying/intolerance to students throughout New Jersey. To foster her skills in advocacy, she competes on her school’s National Championship winning Ethics Bowl Team, as a lawyer in Mock Trial, and in the American Legion High School Oratorical Competition. In her free time, you can find her screenwriting, reading about ethics and philosophy, or re-watching episodes of The West Wing.


My HERlead Project will create a safe online space for people with Tourette’s syndrome to come together, share their stories, and learn from each other’s experiences. My goal is for this online space to provide educational resources as well as inspiration for people living with Tourette’s syndrome.
