What are you curious about and what do you hope to explore during your time as a Scholar? 

I currently aspire to immerse myself in the global immigrant experience. As a daughter of Mexican immigrants, I have already achieved this to an extent. Now, I would like to broaden my view on these global issues towards immigrants originating from Asia and the Middle East. Through my out exploratory summers, I would also like to delve into the obstacles Indigenous communities of Central America are currently facing, whether that means aiding in educational campaigns or bringing awareness about female disparities. I am also curious and excited to learn about the intersections of citizenship, ethnicity, and socio-economic status.
