Diana Ruiz ’16 Senior Profile: French and Francophone Studies

ruizMy most memorable and important education experience was when I studied abroad in Montpellier my Junior year. It was a very challenging but truly rewarding experience. Living with a host family forced me to speak French constantly and it really helped me improve my language skills. I was also able to travel throughout France to learn about the different regions and their cultures. Studying abroad was an excellent learning opportunity that I would recommend to anyone who wants to learn a different language.

After graduation I will be working for Teach For America in Memphis Tennessee teaching English as a Second Language. I’m excited to start my post-grad career in a different part of the country, exploring a different region of the United States.
