Voices from Abroad | A Student Conversation Celebrating Latinx Heritage Month

In celebration of Latinx Heritage Month, IES Abroad Correspondents who were currently studying abroad across several IES Abroad Centers, came together to discuss their Latinx heritage and their experiences at home and abroad. Each of these students is an IDEA (Initiative to Diversify Education Abroad) Correspondent, which means, they're both open and committed to discussing their identity in their blog and social media posts. On Tuesday, October 12th at 11 a.m CST, they joined us in virtually celebrating and listening as their stories jump from the [web]page to the Zoom screen from abroad. This is a past event, so you can watch the recording!
