- Global Ambassador
What are you studying at Point Loma?
I am a Managerial and Organizational Communications Major. It’s basically a combination of Business and Communications.
Where did you grow up?
I grew up in Santa Paula, California, a small agricultural town in Ventura County.
What countries have you visited?
Spain, Portugal, the Philippines, Mexico, Chile and Argentina
What is your favorite place you've visited in the world?
My favorite place that I’ve visited so far has to be Valparaiso, Chile. It is the art and music capital of South America and it’s one of the most beautiful places that I’ve ever been. Everywhere you go there are live musicians, murals being painted, street performers, jewelry makers, and delicious empanadas being made. It’s just a wonderful place!
What is the next place you would like to visit in the world?
This is such a tough question, because there are so many incredible cities out there to explore! I’ve always wanted to go to Greece to see the beautiful beaches, ancient architecture, and eat gyros!
If you could live in any other city in the world, what would it be and why?
I just returned from studying abroad in Chile, and I fell in love with South America. I would love to live somewhere in Peru or Columbia to get a different taste of Latin American culture. During my time abroad I learned quite a bit of Spanish and I’d love to live in a Spanish-speaking community again to practice all that I learned.
What languages do you speak/are learning?
Now I can proudly say that I speak two languages; English and Spanish!
What advice do you have for study abroad students?
Studying abroad is such an amazing opportunity, take advantage of it! While abroad, appreciate each day as it comes; make new friends, try different foods, use the local language (even if you sound silly), and appreciate everyday that you have!
