Anne Lin, Baltimore City Department of Social Services

Anne's Fellowship:

Anne is a Junior Analyst in the Office of Innovation at the Baltimore City Department of Social Services (BCDSS). In this role, she will be providing input on dealing with a wide range of issues which impact both the functioning of BCDSS and the welfare of tens of thousands of Baltimoreans. Anne will be analyzing city-wide health and welfare metrics to measure how BCDSS priorities match up to the realities of adults and children who utilize various economic assistance, health prevention, and child care services in Baltimore. She believes in the power of data to provide an understanding of how equality does (or does not) manifest in a community, and aims to inform all her work by her commitment to equal rights in all its forms of identity.


Anne is a proud Atlien, kitty lover, and is constantly trying to improve her cooking skills to match those of her mother's.

Why do you choose to live and work in Baltimore?  

Baltimore is the kind of place filled with wonderful weirdos who love and care deeply for their city. It's for all who have something to say and want to make things happen.

What's one surprising fact about yourself?  

For a middle school assignment where the students were asked to interview an adult in their life, Anne wrote a letter to Anna Wintour. (She didn't answer)

Go-to snack? 

Popsicle. Anne also loves a good cookie.
