Paola, Millennium Fellow 2015-2016
Barry Service Corps, Barry University
Paola Montenegro was born in Venezuela and is now happily studying at Barry University as a junior. Throughout her experience at Barry, she has learned that she enjoys being an advocate for social justice. Paola has discovered a passion for various subjects including human and animal rights. She started as a Biology major but soon realized that she did not wish to pursue a career in this area. Still, her dream has always been to work with the United Nations or with a branch of it. Paola changed her major to International Studies, and will possibly do a minor in Biology. She is a part of the global citizenship team of Barry Service Corps Fellows, is one of the trip coordinators for the Alternative Break Program, and also joined the health campaign, fAIR4all, at the Millennium Campus Conference. In the future, she hopes to pursue a Masters in Public Health, and will continue to work with community organizations whose aim is to achieve social justice.
