Last week, the Humane Society of the United States named 19-year-old Alexis Ulrich its 2010 Humane Teen of the Year. Ulrich, a college sophomore at Arizona State University (ASU), is an outspoken animal-rights activist whose causes include boycotting seal hunts and slaughter, rescuing homeless animals, and helping orphaned animals in Africa. In January, Ulrich spent her winter holiday break from college in Africa, where she volunteered and assisted elephants at a wildlife park in Nairobi, Kenya. Ulrich founded an animal-rights club at ASU, and has spent countless hours campaigning, petitioning, and participating in outreach events at her college.
