Enriquez spent last summer doing fieldwork for her thesis in Bogota and Medellin, Colombia. She also conducted research on informal economic growth in India's largest slum.
She has since worked on smaller research projects on the U.S.-Mexico border for a think tank based in Bogota called Scientific Vortex Inc.
During her sophomore year, she started and directed a conference for Latino student activists across the East Coast under the theme of "Arts and Activism."
Enriquez is also the founder and curator of TEDxYale and presented at TEDActive 2012 on the best practices for a new university level TEDx. She continues to consult new TEDx groups with their projects.
