(2021 McCourt Scholar)
Marlyn Bruno is a Master of Public Policy candidate. She graduated from Princeton University with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology with minors in neuroscience and Spanish language and cultures. Throughout high school and college, Marlyn was a community organizer around immigration issues. She also participated in various civic engagement groups during her time at Princeton, and upon graduation, received formal recognition for her public service work. After four years working on deportation defense programs — first, as a paralegal, and later, as a program analyst at the Vera Institute of Justice — she arrives at McCourt ready to refine her quantitative skillset. Following her graduation from McCourt, she hopes to work on domestic policy solutions to criminal justice, immigration and social inequality issues in the interests of marginalized and criminalized communities.
