C.G. Watson is an author, performing songwriter, and youth activist from Northern California. A 30 year veteran high school Spanish teacher, C.G. was given a life-changing opportunity in 2000: coordinating anti-bullying & conflict resolution programs at the high school where she taught. She recruited and ran the powerful Challenge Day program (www.challengeday.org), and created and ran a successful student mediation program as well. These programs have become the heart of her work as both a Young Adult author and youth activist. C.G. Watson co-founded Never Counted Out, a non-profit that provides books and creative mentorship for students, schools, and programs with limited access.
