What have you learned in your time in college?
The biggest thing I've learned is that the stars are the limit. If you are willing to put in the work, you are truly able to reach anything.

Why did you choose to study abroad?
To try to get to know my family abroad. They live in Mexico, and I believe this is the best time for me to take to the time to know where I come from. Latina Pride!

What are your plans after college?
I am an aspiring Diplomat. Currently, I am deciding between a Master's Degree in Public Policy or a Law Degree.

Why do you think it is important to study abroad?
I think travel in general (to a foreign country or simply a miles away to an unknown part of your city) is eye opening. The important thing is getting out of your comfort zone and truly seeing what our world holds.

Although the buzzing city of Monterrey is irreplaceable, if you drive about half an hour out, you can come across breathtaking views. This weekend, I experienced La parque ecologico de Huasteca.
