I graduated 10 years ago and went to Goucher College, it felt like a “bigger Dublin.” That led me to major in Spanish and minor in psychology and as a requirement of my major I studied abroad in Cordoba, Argentina for six months. It was an eye opening experience to live in another culture and country. After my time in Argentina I knew I wanted to return. So I saved money and moved back to perfect my Spanish language skills and loved the friends I made. I found a job and worked in English language camp, did project management for an architecture studio. It was there that I really perfected my Spanish and confirmed my desire to stay and live in Argentina. From there I started a master’s program in anthropology in Argentina. I am in my third year and my focus is on afro-Cuban dance studies within Argentina.
“It was the many Latino students at Dublin who first introduced me to their culture and the Spanish language. I was always in awe of my teammates on the dance team and credit them with sparking this passion of mine. Dublin was the catalyst.”
