Alejandra Castillo

Student - M.A. Candidate

My name is Alejandra Castillo, I am from Nicaragua. I have a bachelor’s degree in Dance, with a minor in French from Tulane University. After graduating from Tulane, I worked at American Ballet Theatre, during which time, I became interested in their initiative for greater racial and ethnic inclusivity in the ballet community. I volunteer at United Nations Online Volunteer program by translating and proofreading documents Spanish/French/Italian to English. I am now in my first year of the M.A in Latin American Studies. My research interests are human rights (specifically in gender and migration), and the role of women’s movements during periods of transition to democracy.
