Student Delegates

The mission of the ENACT Student Delegate is to foster civic engagement on the college campus and to facilitate engagement and interaction with ENACT students and alumni around the country.

ENACT Student Delegates mentor and collaborate with members of campus clubs to help them become more effective citizen advocates at the state legislative level.

The first cohort of ENACT Student Delegates included Myeisha Boyd (University of Hartford), Marian Gardner (Brandeis University), Mark Hickey (Hendrix College), and Miranda Roberts (University of Maine). The 2017-18 Student Delegate program was led by Anna Khandros, the ENACT Network Alumni and Student Engagement Mentor and Advisor.

Student Delegate - 2018-19

Sage Rosenthal (Brandeis University, Class of 2019)

Sage is currently a senior at Brandeis University in Massachusetts where she is studying Health: Science, Society, and Policy and Psychology. In Spring 2018 she was a student in the Brandeis ENACT course, “Advocacy for Policy Change.” She advocated on behalf of bill H. 488 “An Act to increase access to children’s mental health services in the community.” Through the ENACT course she was able to speak with professionals in legislation, policy, and mental health. Ultimately this experience was the driving factor that inspired her to spend the following summer in Washington D.C. interning with Congresswoman Katherine Clark (MA-05).

In addition to her role as an ENACT delegate, you can find her at Brandeis Undergraduate Admissions where she works as both a tour guide and student interviewer for prospective students. She also spends her time once a week in the on-campus student run radio station jamming out to her weekly radio show.

“Without the ENACT program at Brandeis University, I would have never had the political and advocacy experience I now have,” says Sage. “ENACT has helped inspire me to learn more about what I am passionate about, and has taught me that anyone can raise their voice and make a difference!”
