Isabel Fajardo

Former Intern

Isabel Fajardo graduated with a bachelor’s degree in psychological science and Chicanx Latinx studies at  Pomona College after graduating as valedictorian from Emerson Preparatory School in Washington, D.C. Isabel currently works as a kindergarten teacher at the District of Columbia Public Schools. Her interests include fashion, design, media and social justice.

Isabel has written for the Northwest Current, a former D.C. newspaper, and is the founder and was the president of an ACLU club, in which students discuss social justice issues with a mission of giving young people a chance to make themselves heard as activists. Her interest in finance came from living in a gentrifying Latino neighborhood, a summer economic pre-college course at Brown University and research about D.C. Isabel also was the ambassador to the Inlight Magazine chapter at her school, a multicultural magazine with a focus on unique student perspectives. One of her proudest achievements was being awarded the Critical Exposure Youth Leadership Award. ​
