Brandon Reyes

I'm a Government major at St. Lawrence University, currently in my sophomore year. My dad recently retired from the Air Force as a Master Sergeant, so throughout my childhood I got the opportunity to travel the world and move from base to base in places like Japan and England. My mom works in government contracting while also studying at law school. These perspectives gave me a no-excuses, big-picture view of the world, which I want to use to help marginalized people and aid the environment.

Hola! I'm Sofia Macero Piñango. I'm from Venezuela, specifically from a little town called Los Teques. I am a really serious, and according to some, mean person, who at the same time happens to be a funny and happy tiny Venezuelan. My music, food, and traditions are a part of me that I learned to embrace after studying at UWC Mostar, in Bosnia and Herzegovina, for two years. There, I learned what the real meaning of being Latino was and the power our entire culture holds.
