I am originally from Jalisco, Mexico and I moved to Florida at the age of 12. I am a student at Florida Gulf Coast University and I am majoring in Communication with a minor in Latin American Studies. I am a Student Assistant at the Office of Service-Learning and Civic Engagement at FGCU, and I volunteer as an English tutor for the University's maintenance staff. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing my students' notebooks after a class. I enjoy photography and traveling. In the future, I would love to travel all through Latin America to capture the struggles that most of these countries have to face and raise awareness of them in the United States.
