From: San Salvador, El Salvador, Central America
After growing up in one of the most violent neighborhoods in El Salvador, Karla Castillo received a bachelor’s degree in economics and business from Escuela Superior de Economia y Negocios in 2015. Castillo has studied in nine different countries on an academic scholarship—including the State Department’s Study of the U.S. Institutes for Scholars program—to learn about government systems. Realizing El Salvador needed assistance, she became involved in human rights and worked with the United Nation’s High Commissioner for Refugees.

Castillo has also expressed an interest in assisting asylum seekers during her time in the United States.
