Hello! My name is Andrew Castillo, and I am from Los Angeles, California. I’m am a sophomore from Los Angeles, California. I am a first generation college student with a cultural background from Ecuador. As an Economics and Sociology major, I love making connections between the communities I engage with and the ways that we can cooperate together to further our growth. I love playing sports, listening to jazz and traveling and exploring new places that I've never been with friends! 

How has Bonner impacted your time at Brown? I have become much more involved in the Providence community. Being at Brown can sometimes mean that students are in a bubble on College Hill, so Bonner provides a way for students to get involved and engaged in the community.
