Bachelor of Arts

Universidad San Fransisco de Quito

I studied abroad in Quito, Ecuador for five months where I practiced my Spanish and spent my time traveling throughout Latin America. This experience allowed me to see some of the cultural, racial, gender and class issues that are prevalent throughout the continent. This has helped me realize that I want to focus my post-graduate studies on Latin American politics. I hope to one day work towards solving these issues while living in this area.
