Diana Guardado DIANA GUARDADO Intern Diana Guardado is committed to championing community voices and translating them into political power. Currently, she is a senior at Menlo College studying Political Science and Public Policy. Diana has traveled to Uganda, Rwanda, the United Arab of Emirates, and India to conduct research on international governance. Her research has centered on the philosophy of Paul Farmer, a Global public-health pioneer and equity advocate, and her goal is to work in partnership with organizations and communities to assess the root causes of systemic issues. Throughout her experiences abroad, she successfully advised nongovernmental organizations, government officials, and private institutions on how to create innovative and multicultural research practices. Diana was born in North Hollywood, California and raised by two Salvadorean war refugee parents, who instilled the importance of amplifying the voices of under-resourced communities. This passion has fueled her commitment to working on local congressional campaigns and community initiatives, as well as cultivating culturally relevant and equitable community development work.
