Darializa is a sophomore at Columbia University in NYC and is originally from Miami, Florida. She is very proud of her Dominican background and believes that her identity is what has directed a lot of her academic interests. Being of a minority culture and growing up in the US pushed her to further explore and understand her own culture and that of others, which in turn led her to foster a real appreciation for various middle eastern cultures. Darializa hopes to one day work at the UN. This summer, Darializa is teaching Core Competency at An Najah University, and ESL to children enrolled in TYO's Core Child Program.
