Rainbow Chen joined the YIA squad in September 2017 as a Brown Bonner Community Fellow. She proudly hails from Winooski, Vermont, home to the state’s most diverse school and a place where she has actively participated in state education policy and reform groups. At YIA, she hopes to build on her experiences and help empower students to be their best selves. She is currently studying education at Brown University, but she doesn’t restrain herself from her love of music and the humanities. If you see someone in a horse mask spewing nonsense about Vermont or other things, it’s Rainbow.
