Evan Parent knows activism.
Parent—30, who works as a service manager and system designer for Stellar Solar—is the south state regional director for the California Young Democrats and was a delegate to the Democratic National Convention.
“My biggest accomplishment thus far was being elected as a delegate to the DNC in Charlotte in 2012,” he said. “I wish to continue my activism with an emphasis in renewable energy. Perhaps in the near future, we can harness the power of the tides.”
Parent said he finds inspiration from various people, including his friends.
Advice for young people:
“What kind of advice would you give to young and budding leaders? Being a leader is not about who you hang out with, what organizations you’ve paid dues to, or what ‘leadership’ classes you've taken. Being a leader is about setting an example for those around you. It is about who you are as a person, and what you do as that person.”
