Award Year 

Anthropology, Urban Studies

Carina Sandoval is from the suburbs of Chicago planning on double concentrating in International and Public Affairs on the development track as well as Urban Studies. Although from the suburbs, her main focus is bringing change to the city and how organizations can better accommodate the many immigrant and low-income populations that reside in it. Beyond the fellowship, she is also involved in the Housing Assistance Collaborative through Housing Opportunities for People Everywhere (HOPE) and Sexual Health Awareness through Peer Education (SHAPE) teaching sex-ed in a local Providence high school. She is also a part of the executive board for Students for Educational Equity as the Advocacy Team leader, advocating for Brown's support of Providence Public Schools. Finally, she is the community outreach officer for the Class Coordinating Board (CCB), an event-planning organization. Her main focus is finding ways to extend the organization’s impact to the greater Brown community and finding ways to integrate Brown with Providence. She is undecided as far as what she wants to do after her 4 years at Brown, however, she is hoping that the Social Innovation Fellowship will help her find that.
