Nacie Loh began her civic life growing up in Cambridge, MA. With parents active in social justice work in Boston, she spent time learning from and participating in local efforts. Much of her thinking about community comes from her time at the Farm School in Athol, MA, where, along with agricultural skills, she learned what values of kindness and caring for yourself, human/nonhuman others, and the land look like in practice. Through the City School's Summer Leadership Program in Boston, Nacie learned about race, positionality and personal/collectibe power, developing a deeper sense of responsibility and place as a mixed Asian/Euro-American person. Later in high school she worked with organizations like Boston Mobilization, MA Youth for Climate Justice, and Groundwork Sommerville, furthering her understanding of community organizing, anti-capitalism, and environmental justice through efforts such as creating/facilitating workshops and managing community gardens. Through these expereinces, Nacie has come to believe that people, relationships and communities are where true powed come from. While at Tufts, Nacie hopes to major in Race, Colonialism, and Diaspora and minor in Studio Art, while continuing to learn from and work with the various communities she belongs to -- through Tisch Scholars and beyond.
