Graduates 2012-2013

Kate Furgurson ’13 Senior Profile: Hispanic Studies

IMG_0757Originally interested in majoring in biology and environmental science, I took my first Hispanic Studies class in order to maintain the Spanish I learned in high school. I quickly fell in love with the program and decided to become a major. One of the many highlights of my time at William and Mary was being able to use the language skills and cultural knowledge I acquired in Hispanic Studies classes to communicate with people during three alternative break trips to Honduras. I also love drawing connections between my Hispanic Studies and Environmental Policy classes. Finally, I am grateful to have had the opportunity to spend a semester of academic and personal growth in La Plata, Argentina. In June I will be moving to Mount Airy, North Carolina to do health outreach with migrant farmworkers.
