Austin Fellman - SOMN - US Youth Ambassador

Austin Fellman

SOMN U.S. Youth Ambassador

Hey, Unified Generation! I am Austin Fellman and I am a graduate of Lincoln High School in Thief River Falls, Minnesota. I will be attending Concordia in Moorhead, MN majoring in Elementary Education and a minor in German. I have been doing Unified for 3 years! I started locally in my town/community as a Unified partner and volunteer. My first encounter with Special Olympics was Unified Sports®, Unified P.E., and the Polar Plunge. Since then, I applied for Special Olympics Minnesota Board of Student Directors. I currently serve as the CO-VP of the board. Along with being a US Youth Ambassador, I also received a Youth Innovation Grant through Special Olympics North America. In February 2023, I was fortunate to attend Capitol Hill Day in Washington D.C. for the first time!

When I am not involved with Special Olympics, I spend my time playing card & board games. I also enjoy playing tennis. I have been playing for 7 years! I also compete in Speech through the National Speech & Debate Association (NSDA) & Minnesota State High School League (MSHSL). I have been in Speech for 5 years and made it to the state tournament 3 years in a row. I was the captain of the team for 3 years. I enjoy being outdoors, hiking is hands down my favorite hobby! In Minnesota, Duluth/Taylor Falls is my favorite area to hike! #liveunifiedy'all!
