Through my time in the Hispanic Studies program, I’ve gained an appreciation for cultural studies, as well as a new lens through which to understand the world we live in. My favorite experience was studying abroad in Cadiz, Spain last summer because I was able to become immersed in the language and culture I’d spent years studying. I made lots of new friends and strengthened the bonds with those I already had. After graduation, I’ll be starting a one-year Master of Accounting program here at the Mason School of Business in the fall. It’s been a chaotic, yet enriching past 4 years and I look forward to seeing how the future unfolds.
