Senior Profile: Lisette Obando Pardo (Hispanic Studies ’19)

The Hispanic Studies Department at William and Mary offered me many more opportunities than I could have imagined. Through the program, I was able to study abroad twice in Cádiz and Seville, Spain the summer of 2017 and spring semester 2018 last year. I was not only able to improve my Spanish reading and writing skills being a native speaker but I was also enabled to experience multiple countries and cultures during my times abroad as well. Through these trips and the department I grew close to my wonderful advisor Francie Cate-Arries and couldn’t be more grateful for the friendships with the professors and peers I’ve met along the way. After graduation, I’ll be working as a Business Analyst for CGI in Northern Virginia after traveling in South America for a bit over the summer! Huge thanks to the Hispanic Studies department for all the guidance and opportunities they’ve offered, and cheers to the Class of 2019!
