Jessica in Barcelona

I am a young Latina student who is passionate about travel, community empowerment, and celebration of diversity. I am the only daughter of Mexican immigrants and my life has been a colorful blending of Mexican and American cultures that has created a passion for the exploration of diverse cultures through travel. In all that I do, I try to learn about and immerse myself in worlds and communities unlike my own, because with each experience I grow as a conscious global citizen and will be able create bridges that can bring about positive social change in communities throughout the world.

Favorite thing about going abroad?

I am most excited to fully immerse myself in an unfamiliar environment and culture because there is no telling how much I can gain from truly living how the people of Barcelona do. Not only will it widen my world view, but it will also create a new appreciation and love for a culture that I had never experienced before.
