Anis believes that, in every young person’s life, education can mean the beginning of equity or exclusion. As a Partnership Associate, she brings her commitment to serving communities that have historically been denied access to opportunity.
She has worked with students in shelters, prisons, schools, and theatre companies. Together she and her students question existing systems and reimagine spaces that erase their experience. As a social commentator, she has received fellowships from numerous institutions, including Everyday Feminism, VONA/Voices, and King County. Her writing explores issues of race, power, and community accountability.
She earned a B.A. in Theatre Arts from Santa Clara University and formed her politics at Seattle’s BENT Writing Institute.
