Krista Naomi Arellano (MY’21) is a Chicana from Watsonville, California, the Berry City, where her grandparents immigrated to from Michoacan and Zacatecas, Mexico. At Yale, Krista is majoring in Political Science and Ethnicity, Race, and Migration. Her interests in Global Health stem from the health disparities she has witnessed within her rural community and within the greater Latinx diaspora in the United States. Through her own educational experiences as well as her volunteer work with Community Health Educators, Krista is passionate about providing equitable, comprehensive, and culturally responsive health education to under-resourced communities throughout the US and Latin America. After graduation, she plans to attend law school. On campus, Krista enjoys working at the Yale Law School Library, choreographing as an Artistic Director for Ballet Folklorico Mexicano de Yale, and bonding with fellow Yale Latinas as a board member of Latina Women at Yale. In her free time, she loves to read, journal, play her acoustic guitar, and listen to true-crime podcasts.
