Maxwell Johnson

Policy and Advocacy – Healthcare

Maxwell Johnson has been engaged with leadership and service since he first enrolled at San Diego State University in 2017. Originally from Sacramento, California, his interest in politics and public service led him to graduate with a Bachelors of Arts degree in Political Science and Communication. He was also accepted into the Weber Honor’s College upon his enrollment into SDSU, and through the program received a minor in Interdisciplinary Studies.

Having previously served as the President of Rotaract of SDSU, he gained valuable skills in community outreach, volunteer coordinating, and networking. As a Rotaract, he helped plan community service projects, coordinated career professionals to speak at business meetings, and led a ten person executive team.

In his time at SDSU, Maxwell has also been provided with various different awards for his leadership and service on campus. He was honored as a member of the Mortar Board Society on campus which highlights students leadership experience, community service impact, and academic achievements. He was also highlighted for his service and leadership on campus as a member of the 2020 SDSU Homecoming Court. Finally he was presented with the Quest for the Best: 2021 Vice Presidential Student Service Award for his accomplishments in the SDSU community as a graduating senior.

Currently Maxwell is a member of the Young Leaders Advisory Council (YLAC) with the California Forward organization, an advocacy group that aims to improve government operations and increase the development of sustainable operations for policy making. As a Sacramento Kings fan he knows how to find the positive in dire situations and looks forward to diving right in as Club 33’s youngest member to date.
