Majoring in Hispanic Studies and Government, I have enjoyed combining these interests in my coursework, research, and internships. I have particularly benefited from the flexibility that Hispanic Studies offers through courses and experiences related to both Spain and Latin America. Through William and Mary’s Cádiz, Spain study abroad program, I researched immigrants’ representation in the Spanish health care system. I studied and gained experience in U.S.-Latin American diplomacy through internships with the National Security Archive Southern Cone Project and the U.S. Department of State. I presented to the policy community a white paper on the possible effects of U.S. immigration reform on Mexico’s stability as a fellow with the Project on International Peace and Security, William and Mary’s undergraduate think tank. In the future, I look forward to continuing to pursue these interests in a career in public policy.
