Alondra Gonzalez Carrillo is a RISE AmeriCorps member with the Iowa Latino Affairs Commission. She is from Aurora, Colorado. Alondra found her way to Iowa when she enrolled at Drake University where she is getting her bachelor’s degree in Public Relations with a minor in Marketing and Spanish.
Alondra’s background is mainly in non-profits where she has focused on advocacy. Working with La Línea de Ayuda has opened the opportunity to firsthand communicate with people that have had to adapt to a new world in the United States, and Alondra has found value in being able to personally offer a helping hand to those who need it.
