we’re a group of students from vastly different backgrounds who come together every week to discuss the topics that matter to students right now.
I’m Charly Castillo, a sixteen-year-old high school student from Weehawken, New Jersey. I’m looking forward to working as a host on Homeroom because I’ll be able to talk about some of my favorite topics— from books to more random weekly talking points.
I’m passionate about astronomy and equitable education and have been working to combine those interests through my work at two STEM nonprofit organizations.
In the future, I hope to major in astronomy or astrophysics and either get into research or academia.
