Zoë Feigelson is the Student Union’s Assistant Director of External Affairs. Her enthusiasm for the position is informed by her own experiences with extracurricular learning.
Zoë loved AP Bio this past year, and through it got to participate in the national “Genes in Space” competition, as well as two lab courses with the Urban Barcode Research Program. She is a committed visual artist, and works regularly with outside organizations: this year, she interned at the Museum of Art and Design, participated in ArtsConnection’s “Teen Reviewers and Critics” program, placed paintings in two gallery shows and a documentary film, and studied drawing at Cooper Union - all programs she learned about through Stuy. Zoë does social justice work in a leadership role with Teens for Press Freedom, and groups including Fridays for Future, Extinction Rebellion, and Rise Up 4 Abortion Rights. She is active in the Prison Education Club and ACLU at Stuy, and this fall will co-lead a new club - a Stuy branch of the national group Students Demand Action.
In her free time Zoë loves to read, draw, listen to music, and walk around the city.
