Tramoya Sledge, Missouri

Central Visual and Performing Arts High School | St. Louis, MO

What if teenagers felt they had a voice in the future of our country? This election season, the Student Reporting Labs network of more than 100 schools across the country asked middle and high school students to talk to the next president about the issues they feel need to be addressed.

Tramoya Sledge wants the next president to put an end to income inequality, starting with closing the wage gap between white and black households.
