Lara Crochik

Lara Crochik is an 18-year-old first year at UNC-Chapel Hill and is studying Global Studies and Political Science who grew up in Cary, NC. In her free time, she loves to pursue her passion for photography, play with her dog Cosmo, hang out with her friends, and drink lots of coffee like any good Brazilian. Her parents are from Brazil, and Lara is very proud of being both an American and a Brazilian living in the United States. She is grateful for all the opportunities she’s had and will continue to do her best with the ones to come. Her hope is to eventually work for a nonprofit or in the United States State Department to be able to help others get access to the same opportunities as she has had, bring different people together, and to help improve the world in any way that she can!
