Isabelle Trujillo

Loyola University Chicago
Class of 2024

Providing equal opportunity for minority youth through non-profit work and political reform.

Education, faith, and community make up the foundation of who Isabelle is as a person. Her exposure to Jesuit traditions at her high school allowed Isabelle to discover a deeper sense of what it means to be a “woman for others.” She has led her peers as a Kairos and Freshman Retreat Leader, a Varsity Captain for basketball and volleyball, a Freshman Advisement Assistant, and in holding a part-time job. These experiences showed Isabelle the fulfillment in pushing herself for the sake of others and positively impacting her community through leadership.

As an intern for the Colorado House of Representatives, Isabelle was exposed to the inner workings of the state including charter school funding, transportation, and the environment. This role sparked an interest in politics, and she aims to work at the state or federal government level in her future. As an intern for the Boys and Girls Clubs of Metro Denver, she was exposed to the nonprofit world and working with youth. Isabelle hopes to one day start a nonprofit focused on elementary-aged minority students to provide access to computers, sports equipment, and dance lessons.
