In honor of VOX’s 25th birthday on May 13, 2018, we are celebrating 25 Days of VOX! For the 25 days leading up to our birthday, we will be sharing short profiles of 25 people who have been a part of VOX’s journey during our first quarter century. Follow along to learn more about the people who have made VOX the place where teens speak and Atlanta listens. Check out the other profiles here.

Mary Hinkel is a VOX Board alumna and served as the fundraising chair while on the Board. She continues to support VOX in a number of ways, including volunteering as the event co-chair for our 2015 Homecoming event. Mary is pictured above with her husband Dan at our 2017 Homecoming event.

What’s your favorite VOX memory? Participating in the numerous – and very creative – icebreakers before each board meeting and teen gathering

What’s your hope for VOX’s future? I hope VOX continues to strengthen and expand its programs so more teens benefit from opportunities to publish, speak and advocate on issues impacting their lives and their families and our nation.

What 3 words would you use to describe VOX? Empowering, inspiring, connecting
