Danielle Castro (SM ’23) is an MB&B major from Fairfax, Virginia. With a strong connection to her Peruvian and Indigenous heritage, she is interested in studying women’s health and sexual health in South America and particularly in Indigenous communities. Additionally, her personal experiences with educational inequities as a first-generation immigrant and low-income student, an identity of which she is extremely proud, have made her passionate about improving educational access. On campus, she is involved in coronavirus research at the medical school, works as the Yale Public School Intern at Fair Haven School, and is a co-director at the HAVEN Free Clinic. Combining her interests in health and education, she is also currently working on a YSPH study on student and faculty attitudes around COVID-19 school reopenings. She is also an officer for Latina Women at Yale (LWAY).
