Thalia Carroll-Cachimuel – Making a Difference

thalia carroll-cachimuel

A third year Human Services major, Thalia Carroll-Cachimuel has already begun to make great professional strides at the intersection of social work and government. She was recently elected the Vice-Chair of the Latinx Caucus for the College Democrats of Massachusetts, a position in which she hosts multi-school wide workshops, oversees chapter-to-caucus relations and involves chapters in the organization’s programming. Thalia is also embarking on a virtual internship (an “elnterniship”) through the U.S. Department of State, working as a Social Media and Research Intern for the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanics.

In this position, she will act as a liaison between the White House Initiative, local/national Latino/a organizations and federal agencies. Thalia also collects data on Latino education, institutions and communities and participates in strategic planning. In addition, she serves on Northeastern’s Latin American Student Organization e-board as Coalition Coordinator, and is a recipient of the Latino/a Student Cultural Center‘s LaCLA scholarship. Thalia’s accomplishments are a bright example of how the passion for community involvement that is so often felt by Human Services students can be channeled into work that creates positive, real-world change.
