I am a
Mexican American student at
the University of California
- San Diego, currently in
year and traveling the world with Semester at Sea.
I am a double major in Communications and
Spanish Literature. I have lived my entire
life in the city of Los Angeles,
and am the first in my family to have gone to a four-year university.
At first I chose
Semester at Sea as my study abroad program because I wanted to study in
than one country. I’ve now discovered
that this journey is so much more than that. The
encounters and observations that I have written about
in this site,
and others not shown, have helped me understand and appreciate myself
people that are dear to my heart.
parents did not
graduate from high school they are supportive of my decisions and my
determination to find my place in the world. I
am an independent person who has opened doors for
myself and am not scared
to try challenging things. I have a
unique interest in the languages of the world and the cultural
between myself and the people I encounter in my travels.
I am excited to keep on learning and expanding
my worldly knowledge.
