Sol Petroni

Junior Manager for Communications

In Elementary School, a teacher once asked Sol’s classmates to write what they wanted to be when they grew up. Her answer was, “first, I want to sell cars (like my dad), then I want to be mayor and then become president.”. Back then, she believed running the country would solve the conflicts she saw in her community. Nowadays, her desire to tackle issues has transcended those of her community, and now she is a proud Latin American on a journey to solve the region’s most pressing conflicts.

Sol has participated in different social impact projects since the age of fifteen on issues like climate change, street harassment, and intercultural education. Those led her to LALA as she participated in a Leadership Bootcamp in 2019 and the inaugural Academy in 2020. She is a senior year Communications student at the National University of Rosario (Argentina) and works at LALA as Junior Associate for Communications.

As Junior Associate for Communications, Sol takes over the management of current communication systems and content development. She also leads the long-term departmental strategy and accompanying structure development while also working with stakeholders across LALA to meet departmental communication needs.
