Assemblymember Bonnie Lowenthal (D–Long Beach) hosted the third annual “30 under 30” recognition event on Oct. 9 at Keesal, Young & Logan law firm to honor 30 local women for accomplishments in business, the arts, volunteerism and sports. “In each of these young women we see what makes California great,” said Lowenthal, chair of the Legislative Women’s Caucus. “They’re our future leaders and innovators that will blaze new trails and build stronger communities for us all.”
Each year, Lowenthal solicits nominations from community leaders, businesses and constituents from across the district. This year, several of the nominees were nominated by prior honorees.
“It’s great to see this event grow and evolve,” Lowenthal said. “Not only is it a chance for us to recognize their accomplishments, it’s a chance for each of them to build networks that will shape their careers for years to come.”
The 2013 honorees are: Tokotah Skye Ashcraft, Madaly Alcala, Amanda Barto Kilpatrick, Ana Bonilla, Alyson Bryant, Sophya Chum, Victoria Chung, Joanna Concepcion, Salina Crespin, Meghan Daniels, Amanda Em, Alexandria Escobar, Whitney Graves, Agatha Gucyski, Tiffany Howard, Ashley Jones, Allyson Joy, Alexandra Macias, Delia Martinez, Marissa Martinez, Jamie McLaughlin, Laura Merryfield, Alicia Morales, Teresa Orozco, Monica Samreth, Somatra Sean, Samantha Sears, Susana Sngiem, Alicia Virani, Thao Vo and Alexandra Weiss.
