“Be The Change You Want To See In The World.”
One of the things I love about my job is meeting incredible individuals. When Keegan was 14 they discovered she was Intersex. Keegan has a syndrome called Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome. AIS means they have XY chromosomes, internal testes, and ‘male’ hormonal patterns even though externally they appear female. Keegan is a founder of the GSA (Gender & Sexuality Alliance) club at their high school and is the Vice President of the Triangle Alliance (LGBT+club) at Everett CC. Keegan says they are passionate about equality and would like to go into law/politics, but their ultimate goal would be to serve on the supreme court. They are hoping to attend Reed College or UW to study Pre-Law and then apply to grad school.
I can tell, even in the very brief time I spent with Keegan, that they are going places. Their enthusiasm, their infectious smile and most of all their heart are going to take them on so many adventures.
Keegan has agreed to take part in my ‘Day in the Life’ series so stay tuned for more of Keegan’s incredible story!!
