Isabel Cacho

The daughter of devout Catholic parents, Isabel was blessed to learn about God at an early age. She continued to be surrounded by a faith-affirming community when she attended St. Thomas Aquinas College. Isabel has served as the secretary and taught Catechism at her local parish, participated in Thomas Aquinas Students for Life, worked as a student librarian, and volunteered in her local community. She has always had a desire to pursue truth, which led her to study the Great Books curriculum in college. She looks forward to the John Jay Fellows Program as a way to focus her studies in the realm of politics, especially with regard to current political issues. In addition to a strong calling to marriage and motherhood, Isabel has an interest in pursuing constitutional law and a commitment to the pro-life movement.

Every member of the State ought diligently to read and to study the constitution of his country, and teach the rising generation to be free. By knowing their rights, they will sooner perceive when they are violated, and be the better prepared to defend and assert them."
John Jay, Charge to the Grand Jury, Ulster County, New York, NY 1777
