Major: Adolescence Education - Spanish
About Me: When I am not at school in Oneonta, I reside in Rockland County, NY. In my future, I would like to work with the international community in some capacity!
Something on my bucket list: Go jet skiing!
Why I wanted to become a Peer Mentor: I wanted to become a Peer Mentor because I desired to form new connections and learn from students from other countries. I also wanted to be able to support students who needed guidance during this difficult time of transition. I believe that it is an extremely valuable opportunity to be able to learn from people with different experiences across the globe!
Advice to international students: Don't be afraid to reach out and explore new opportunities! We are a friendly campus community with lots to do and see!
