When I came to William & Mary as a freshman I had originally planned on minoring in Hispanic Studies. After taking a couple of Hispanic Studies courses that year, I had the opportunity to study abroad in Cádiz, Spain. Guided by Professor Cate-Arries, I had the most amazing experience while abroad, and now regard Cádiz as one of my favorite cities in the world. Many classes and a few years later, I am now a Hispanic Studies Major and Marketing Minor. I am thankful to all of my professors and experiences at the College for further developing my skills as a creative and analytical thinker and as an effective communicator. Upon my graduation, I plan to pursue a career in marketing and public relations, and hopefully my career opportunities will allow me the ability to maintain my Spanish.
