Giselle is a junior who is studying English Literature, Digital Humanities, and Political Science. Coming from a family of Mexican immigrants and growing up along the border in San Diego, her heritage has fundamentally shaped her calling to represent the needs of the immigrant and Latinx community, as an aspiring future lawyer and politician. She has interned for the Holder Initiative for the past two years, after receiving funding from the Holder Initiative her freshman summer to work at the Partnership for Public Service in Washington DC. Through her work in the "American Voting Project," she has planned a Policy Hackathon which allowed students from all disciplines to solve challenges related to cybersecurity and strengthening our voting infrastructure. Last summer at Equal Citizens, a non-profit organization founded by Professor Lawrence Lessig, she worked on innovative digital media campaigns to create a movement to fix our democracy. At Columbia, she is the current Editor-In-Chief of Columbia Undergraduate Law Review, Marketing Director for Columbia Women in Law and Politics, and a member of Kappa Alpha Theta. Giselle volunteers frequently at non-profit organizations to mentor at-risk youth and Latinx students through ReadAhead and Columbia Latinx Mentoring Initiative.
