As a representative to the Colorado Youth Advisory Council (COYAC), Mercina advised the state legislature on issues relevant to Colorado youth. Glorianna has worked as an intern for Rep.

Both sisters are currently enrolled at Yale University. About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
