Favorite Class

ESP 478 – Border & Race Studies in Latin America with Professor Paola Hernández. The class combined so many important & current topics of the US/Mexico border, immigration, human rights, and politics that were very interesting.


My favorite memory was studying abroad in Spain. This program helped me grow immensely in my Spanish, pushing me outside of my comfort zone, allowed me to travel, and created incredible memories.

The Future?

Although my fall plans are a bit uncertain, my ultimate plan is to go to law school and someday be an immigration lawyer. I hope to continue to develop and utilize my Spanish both personally and professionally.
