About me: Hi everyone! My name is Izzy Colindres and I am a Senior majoring in Public Health - Global Health with a minor in Data Science. I am originally from San Pedro Sula, Honduras, but moved to Washington State when I was 10 years old. To this day, I credit my life in Honduras as the foundation of values and aspirations that drive my passions for leadership and public health to advocate on behalf of underrepresented communities. I love traveling and driving with no destination in mind, just letting my subconscious take me to new adventures. More than anything, I love meeting new people, trying new foods, and spending time with my loved ones. Those closest to me would often describe me as driven and ambitious but also kind-hearted and a little silly. As this is my fourth year at the UW, I have a very diverse perspective on what the Honors Interdisciplinary Program is like. I also have varied experience getting connected to opportunities on campus, as I have been part of the ASUW Ambassador Program, the Latinx Student Union's Advocacy Committee, and now the the pre-health fraternity Delta Epsilon Mu. Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions about my experience at the UW or if you just want to connect, I would love to chat!
