My name is Jarell Spears and I am from New York City. I lived in Brooklyn, NY with my family until I was 18 years old and then I moved to Boston to study in university. While in university, I participated in a lot of Latino Organizations as well as join my school's Dance Troupe, where I was able to continue my interest of dancing. I spent 5 years in school finishing my undergraduate degree in Materials Science and Engineering, and along the way I was fortunate enough to have some amazing experiences, with research labs in college, but also with internships (my last one was in Pamplona, Spain). Now, I have recently graduated and I am about to start an amazing internship in Campinas, Brasil and I am excited about the opportunity that I will have to not only gain profesional experience, but to also learn more about and live the Brazilian culture.
