Hi! I’m Carolina Castro, and I am Civic Nebraska’s new civic health intern. I am a first-year student at the University of Nebraska, studying biology and Spanish. I’m so excited to be interning for Collective Impact Lincoln, because I have a passion for fair democracy!

Here are five quick things about me.

I’m from Omaha, but I am a Texan at heart. I grew up in Omaha, but all of my extended family lives in Texas – so we are there at least twice a year. Both my parents also went to college in Texas, so we have lots of ties there.

I went to Dual Language school and did the International Baccalaureate Program. My schooling was always a bit different than most people because I did both Spanish and English school from kindergarten through eighth grade. Then, when I went to high school, I did IB, which is a program that follows a curriculum that students all over the world follow.

I love to travel and have traveled a lot. My parents love going on family trips to new places, both in the U.S. and abroad. Some of the places I’ve been abroad have included Greece, Spain, France, England, Germany, and the Netherlands.

I’ve probably played every sport once. When I was younger my mom and dad made me try a lot of sports until I found one I liked and I would stick with. It made for really busy weekends, but I guess they wanted me to have options.

My Clifton Strengths are:

  1. Empathy
  2. Developer
  3. Positivity
  4. Consistency
  5. Restorative

The university is big on Clifton Strengths, especially if you are in the College of Business. I did the test for a class that was required for my Emerging Leader Scholarship. Knowing where my leadership strengths lie has really helped me put them to use!

We’re glad Carolina is with us this semester. Join us in welcoming her to Civic Nebraska. She’s at civichealthintern@civicnebraska.org.
