Social Work major, Law & Public Policy minor, Class of 2022
Hello! My name is Michelle Castro and I'm a sophomore from Lafayette, IN. Coming to IU, I started off as a Biochemistry major and now I'm a Social Work major with a minor in Law & Public Policy. As a Social Work major, I'm interested in expanding diversity and inclusion into everyday settings and being an empathetic listener. I'm passionate about lots of things, but my top three include social justice, human rights, and education. I love Kacey Musgraves, cats, and Parks and Recreation (the series). I love IU and I'm so grateful I chose IU to call home. Through my involvement in Hoosier Scholar Ambassadors, I've had the chance to recruit and talk to high school seniors about my experience at IU while helping them figure out if IU is their best fit. Helping others and serving as a mentor is something I find highly rewarding and whether it be that someone needs a listening ear or self-care tips, I am always available to help.
