Estrella Verenice Castillo

Estrella is a Sociocultural Anthropology undergraduate student at the School of General Studies (G.S.) at Columbia University, a fellow with the G.S. Program for Academic Leadership and Service, former board member of the First-Generation Student Advisory Board, GS Student Representative on the Columbia Sustainable Leaders Network committee, and is committed to the exchange of knowledge and collaboration with peers on projects regarding critical sustainability. Prior to matriculating at Columbia, she obtained an Associate Degree in Sociology, volunteered for and was employed as a community organizer for groups ranging in focus from environmental health to worker's rights. These projects sharpened her interests in the interdisciplinary approach to the issue of climate change. Estrella hopes to someday obtain a PhD and an eventual professorship, or a career in journalism and/or law.
