Biography: After growing up in Seattle, Chiloe spent a number of her high school years in her mother's home country Chile where she truly began her life long commitment to active community engagement and social justice. She transferred to Hampshire College in the fall of 2010 and is interested in studying public policy, public health, education and Hip Hop studies. She is currently debating how to best incorporate an exploration of transformative justice into all of this and eagerly anticipates the cohesive resolution of her many academic interests into a concentration. Chiloe has a black belt in Aikido and a voracious passion for good food. As a queer woman of color, she is extremely excited to work in New York City's queer community through RRASC and the Sylvia Rivera Law Project.
