Annie Delgado was the managing publisher and news editor for Ethic News its inaugural year. During her years at Redlands East Valley High School, Annie was very involved with extracurricular activities. Other than Ethic, Annie was involved in the Wind Ensemble, Link Crew, One Club, and was a three sport athlete participating in cross country, track and field, and soccer.

She credits Ethic with improving her writing skills, and creating lasting friendships which have benefitted her in college. More recently, Annie credits telepresence with her ability to have some sense of comfortability with online classes and teaching, when COVID-19 required that we do everything virtually. She says that she will forever be thankful to Ethic for the opportunities, memories, and experiences it provided her with.

In 2020, Annie Delgado graduated from the University of California, Riverside with degrees in History (United States, distinction) and Political Science (International Affairs).

Currently, Annie Delgado is enrolled in a PhD program for History at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. She will receive her MA in History with a minor in Public History this Spring, and will receive her PhD in History in 2025.

Her current research looks at the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women crisis, and seeks to put capitalistic exploitation of the land at the heart of this violence, to contextualize the movement. Her current research project explores the mineral rushes of the 19th century and the affects it had on Indigenous women in the Sierra Nevadas (California and Nevada). At UNLV, she currently holds roles as the History Representative to the GPSA, an ambassador for the Graduate College, the Vice President of Phi Alpha Theta, and as the graduate student liaison to faculty in the History Department.

She has served as a research assistant, and teaching assistant for History 100 level classes, teaching, working with, and supporting first-generation students.

This summer, Annie will split her time between Las Vegas, Culver City, various parts of California, and Chicago, researching and working on projects related to Indigenous History and Public History.

After graduating with her PhD, Annie will join the academic job market, in hopes of landing a job as a professor at a 4 year university.
