Isabella Molano

Education: Macalester College, B.A., Anthropology, minor in Psychology

Originally from Florida, Bella Molano graduated with honors from Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota, in May 2021. She earned a degree in Anthropology and was awarded the prestigious James P. Spradley Research Award for her exemplary work in anthropological coursework and research. During her undergrad, she had the incredible opportunity to study abroad in the Isaan region of Thailand, where she engaged in field research focused on development and globalization. During her time there, she immersed herself in Thai culture, learning the basics of Thai, partaking in homestays, and speaking directly to activists and grassroots organizations on the ground. Before Minnesota, Bella lived in Brazil where her family is from. Late last year she moved to Madrid, Spain where she serves as an English teaching assistant through the Spanish Ministry of Education. When she’s not teaching, she’s been traveling and exploring her new home, and she also enjoys a good book, practicing yoga, and meditation.
