Katriñe Arnedo was raised in Boulder, Colorado and relocated to Miami in 2010 to pursue a dual degree in International Studies and Political Science at the University of Miami. She is a sister of Delta Delta Delta, Membership Coordinator of UM Young and College Democrats, Philanthropy Co-Chair of the Greek Week Executive Board, student liaison for South Florida Voices for Working Families, as well as a sorority recruitment advisor for this upcoming year. Her education, friends, and family have opened her eyes to the many societal injustices of our time and she seeks to change the apathetic trend present in the mentality of many young adults. As a sophomore, an opportunity arose to support workers’ rights, and since May 2012 she has worked for the UAW Global Organizing Institute to help Nissan workers in Canton, MS. push for a fair union election in their workplace. In 2013, she co-founded the Florida Student Justice Alliance, a student-led organization dedicated to serve as vehicle for student involvement in a variety of local and national social justice issues. She believes that young voices are essential to facilitate change in our communities and hopes to continue her work in student and community organizing upon graduation.
