Hi all! I am a junior at the University of Minnesota studying Global Studies, with a focus on the global political economy in Latin America. I love being able to experience my favorite city, Minneapolis, while gaining my education. My hobbies include reading, trying new food, shopping and exploring. My favorite animal is a sloth, and my favorite travel memory so far was when I got to witness a sloth climbing down from a tree outside of the Panama Canal!
I am most excited to gain experience studying business and economic structure in foreign countries that creates an impact in my character through experiencing new cultures, learning and embracing the South American way of life, traveling, and creating a life lasting bond with my peers and host families.
