  • What is your year and academic concentration?
    I am a fourth year here at the University of Florida majoring in Architecture Design with an interest in landscape architecture.
  • Have you traveled abroad before? If so, where and for what purpose?
    I have traveled to Peru multiple times for a wide period of time, mostly because of family but also recreational. I have lived for 10 years in the jungle, and overtime I go back I explore more deeply the city of Moyobamba; I have been in the coast of Peru (Lima) & the mountain region (Aquas Calientes, Cuzco – Machu Piccu). I have also visited Costa Rica for vacation with my parents, mostly San Jose.
  • Have you studied abroad before? If so, where and what did you study?
    I have not, this is my first time!
  • Where are you studying abroad and why did you choose to study there?
    I will be going to Vicenza, Italy. I chose Italy because it was a great opportunity and something out of my comfort zone and I want to expand my knowledge in architecture as well as culture. 
  • What are you most looking forward to during your study abroad program?
    Expanding my knowledge culturally and architecturally, also using what I learn to create new designs and share the benefits of traveling and studying abroad to those who want to know more information about it.
  • What are some of your interests and hobbies?
    I’m really interested in the different cultures, art, the different food. I love to read, write and draw anything that catches my eye. I love helping people and I strive to design spaces that will benefit the mental health of a person.
  • Anything else you would like us to know about you? I love to make vlogs as well and just recording my life. I love this world so much and I want to spread love anywhere I go with my art and my personality.
