Rita Carmona is in her third year of Kenyon College, located in a small town in Ohio.  She double majors in anthropology and Modern Languages, focusing in Spanish and French. On campus, she’s heavily involved in multicultural clubs.  She is a member of Adelante, Black Student Union, Middle Eastern Students Association, Kenyon Students for Justice in Palestine, Asia Society, and Sisterhood. Carmona is also one of the leaders of both the Diversity Advisors and Kenyon Magnetic voices. She also tutors Spanish-speaking and Latino students off campus with the KABLE program.  Carmona is also a member of the junior board for the Chicago-based NGO Expanding Lives. Music is an important part of her life as well, as she will continue on to her 10th year of playing cello by taking weekly lessons on campus and playing fourth chair in the Knox County Symphony.  Though cello is typically classical, Carmona also challenges herself to improv along with a faculty/student folk band on campus called the Handsome Devils.  Occasionally, Rita auditions for on campus theatre productions, recently becoming a member of KCDC, the on campus Drama organization. Through her involvement in on-campus activism and promoting awareness, Rita hopes to extend this passion to journalism.  This is her first time exploring the field.  Carmona hopes to explore race/ethnicity, music, and social justice in Morocco through writing and getting to know the people and
