Born and raised in Miami, Florida, Katherine A. Marin was taught the power of education, sacrifice, and service by her Colombian American parents and siblings. Katherine graduated as a Phi Beta Kappa Key into Public Service Scholar from the University of Florida Honors Program in 2023, where she studied English Literature and American History. Katherine is a first-generation college student.
While at UF, Katherine served as a Campus Vote Project Fellow and the podcast host of “FPR.” In that time, Katherine organized countless voter registration drives, Get-Out-the-Vote films, election law debates, and educational events for the Gainesville community. Selected as a Reubin Askew Scholar, a J. Wayne Reitz Scholar, and an O. Ruth McQuown Scholar, one of Katherine’s most memorable experiences as an undergraduate student was registering the Florida Football Team to vote.
As a student, Katherine further explored her passion for civil liberties and public interest law as a Tallahassee-Fellow with the Florida Supreme Court, where she studied issues relating to the death penalty, the state constitution, and bond validation cases. She went on to intern with the ACLU and the DNC as a college junior.
As a CHCI Intern, Katherine hopes to build lifelong bonds with aspiring public servants, elevate the concerns of her community, and make sure that every voice is heard.
