My name is Valerie Aguilar Dellisanti and I’m a first-gen rising junior at Brown University majoring in Computer Science – Economics & International and Public Affairs. I grew up in a very diverse environment; I was born and raised in Lima, Peru in an Italian Peruvian family with Amazonian and Afro-Peruvian roots and went to a German school. My undergraduate experience is focused on the intersection of technology, finance, economic development and Indigenous Affairs. I enjoy dancing, dogs, horses, eating, talking about politics and meeting new people.
