Monique Byro

Class of 2019

My name is Monique Byro, and I just graduated from the University of Florida with a Bachelor’s degree in English and a minor in Mass Communications. Born and raised in Miami, Florida, I have experienced the duality between nature and society my entire life. Being from such a bustling city has pushed me to reach out and explore the different avenues for sustainable balances in typical day to day situations. I enjoy reading, writing, and making music in my down time. My favorite national park in the U.S. is Joshua Tree. I hope to use my degree and experience within the Latino Heritage Internship Program to rally for social and environmental changes within the context of my community through different art forms.
