Macarena was born and raised in Denver, Colorado. She recently received her bachelor’s degree from CU Boulder with a double major in international affairs and political science with a minor in leadership.
As an undergraduate Macarena was fortunate enough to spend time studying abroad in China and Ghana. After her time abroad she had the opportunity to intern in the State Capitol for the Speaker of the House, Crisanta Duran and in the US Senate for Senator Michael Bennet. She has also been involved with organizations such as Emerge Colorado and Colorado Organization for Latina Opportunity and Reproductive Rights (COLOR).
During her free time Macarena enjoys spending time with her niece and nephew, traveling, and reading a good book. She looks forward to becoming more politically involved in Denver and is excited to serve on the DYD board.
