Cameron Bartosiewicz is currently a student at California State University Channel Islands studying Biochemistry. Cameron is also a 2022 Newman Civic Fellow.
After writing a speech on the disparities gay youth face and his experiences growing up gay, he came up with the idea for a program directed at high school students to begin addressing this disparity. He founded the Youth Pride Association that year, with the purpose of promoting and fostering the acceptance of LGBTQ students in educational institutions across America.
