I am from Aguadilla, Puerto Rico but I am currently a freshman at Barnard College in New York City. For six years I have worked to create an awareness and prevention campaign against child abuse. I have also participated in various programs in the U.S. which have helped me define my goals of wanting to pursue a major in economics and human rights. I am a lifelong Girl Scout and was selected as a Girl Scout “Young Woman of Distinction” in 2014. This summer, I also worked with Puerto Rico’s House of Representatives and the Department of Education to further the campaign against child abuse.
