Throughout my time as a Hispanic Studies major at William & Mary I have gained fluency in Spanish, the opportunity to live in Seville with a spectacular host family, and a strong intimacy with Spanish culture, literature, art, film, and history. It’s safe to say I will truly never look at Pablo Neruda’s poetry or Salvador Dali’s artwork the same way ever again.
I know my knowledge of the Spanish language will benefit me no matter what career path I choose, and that Spain could always be home for me, if that’s what my future holds.
Next year I will be in Minneapolis. I hope to find an internship relating to environmental policy or urban planning, as well as take pre-requisites for grad school at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities.
