30 under 30 Law and Policy

Eight years ago today, I was on the Forbes 30 Under 30 list in law and politics. An honor, of course, and one that is used again and again in my bios and intros today. Without this honor, it`s unlikely that I got to where I was, that Atlas would have gotten to where it was, and it`s almost certain that people would take me less seriously, as I tend not to seem as serious as you might expect (hint: joy is part of the revolution). Thanks to this honor, I was represented several times in Forbes, I was able to talk about the martyr mentality in nonprofit salaries, Atlas received more funding, and I used the platform to speak publicly about life with a mental diagnosis. I will be eternally grateful to have done so when the list was in its second year and I was still “young enough” to receive it. Matt is now co-founder and creative director of a new studio called Giant Squid and the world is eagerly awaiting the release of his new game project. He is 28 years old. I was introduced for my work helping to shape and lead the Resistance Manual, an organization that helps people educate themselves and participate in the political process. The “manual” itself is a wiki that covers 15 policy areas, with pages for each state. I don`t know why they chose me for the list, but I do know that although the “30 Under 30” list doesn`t claim to consist of “homemade” hits, they sent all the finalists a questionnaire with questions about whether I was an immigrant where I went to school, what was the student debt I had when I graduated. and how much debt I just had. I was also asked how much money I had raised for my business/business and my sources of funding. I do not know how that information was incorporated into their decisions.

Aditi Juneja is a lawyer, writer and activist. She is a co-founder of Resistance Manual and host of the Self Care Sundays podcast. She currently works for Protect Democracy. Forbes today released its 2019 30 under 30 list. It`s a reminder not only of the hard work and intelligence of young people who are changing the world, but also of how success can be uneven due to generational wealth and diverse privileges. At Oak Grove School, we strive to create a non-competitive research climate that fosters mindfulness, understanding, creative expression, and awareness of oneself, others, and the world. We hope to inspire students to truly make a difference in the world. When a school decides to teach outside the box, it is extremely affirmative that two alumni are publicly honored for their innovative service to the world. We also know that there are many more of our graduates doing great work in the world, and while they may not receive the same level of public recognition, we honor them all. Congratulations Leif and Matt! And thank you to all our alumni who are making a difference in the world.

Forbes magazine recently unveiled its third annual “30 Under 30,” a list of 30 young men and women under the age of 30 who are changing the world. There are 15 out of 30 categories: Art & Style, Education, Energy & Industry, Finance, Food & Drink, Hollywood & Entertainment, Law & Politics, Marketing & Advertising, Media, Music, Science & Healthcare, Games & Apps, Social Entrepreneurs, Sports and Technology. Each list is reviewed by a jury of three jurors who are experts in the respective fields. Absolutely. I attended public schools until grade eight. My parents were able to save a portion of my college fees through a plan that provides tax breaks for those savings. I stayed with my parents` health insurance until I was 26, under the Affordable Care Act. I received the income tax credit, which is for people with low or middle incomes.

I took out federal student loans to go to law school. I am currently enrolled in an income-based repayment plan as I pay it back, and I have also subscribed to a utility loan rebate. The way we discuss our successes as individual achievements and how we improve some as “homemade” does not recognize such support systems. Of course, I worked extremely hard. I`m sure Kylie Jenner works hard too. But I don`t think I`ve ever worked as hard as a mother who has multiple jobs for minimum wage. Hard work is not enough. There are structures that affect success.

When it comes to wealth in this country, we no longer have a shortage problem.

We have a sales problem. The world produces enough food to feed everyone, we have about five empty homes for every homeless person in the United States, and the United States spends twice as much on health care as other developed countries. This summer, I wrote about the controversial cover of Forbes` Richest Self-Made Women issue, which featured Kylie Jenner, 21, a member of the Kardashian family dynasty and cosmetics tycoon. Jenner`s description as “self-taught” quickly triggered a negative reaction given the wealth and fame of the family she was born into. This, in turn, led to a conversation on social media about what it means to be self-taught. And yet, I hope you all know that these lists, like so many other awards, are complete and totally absurd. It`s not meant to blow away the amazing people who get this honor, they do wonderful things or have raised a lot of money, or have done incredible feats or have done anything other than their category has awards.
