Soren, one of ANV’s After School Program Counselors, grew up in Humboldt, CA and has lived in the East Bay for seven years. Since graduating from UC Berkeley in 2017, he has worked as a counselor, teacher, and mentor with both children and adults, and he has a deep passion for facilitating self-guided learning and personal growth. Having grown up with two botanists for parents, he knows how important it is to a young person to be able to interact with the natural world, and as a working-class trans person of indigenous descent he cares deeply about social justice and addressing systems of oppression. He is also a visual artist, crafter, and writer.
