Hi! My name is Veronica E. Chinchilla and I am currently serving my AmeriCorps VISTA year with Rhode Island for Community & Justice (RICJ) as their Juvenile Justice Coordinator. I hail from Northern California, the San Francisco/Bay Area to be exact. I am a west-coast kid till I die, but I’m loving my experience here on the East Coast. Some of my favorite things to do are explore, bake, watch anime/read manga, play board games with my housemates, and be an all-around homebody watching Netflix. I am a pretty goal/achievement-oriented individual planning to take an additional year off after AmeriCorps to study Japanese and then apply to grad school. Hit me up if you’re ever in the Bay. Smell ya later!
