DLINQ Lead Intern: Master of Arts in International Education Management (IEM) (’19)
Language of Study: Spanish
Location: Monterey Campus
There have already been a number of times in my life when I’ve stopped and thought what many Talking Heads fans have thought before; “Well, how did I get here?” I came to MIIS by way of Spain, where I spent three years working as an Auxiliar de Conversación, teaching English in primary and secondary schools in Galicia, Asturias, and Madrid. Before I took off for Spain, I worked at a tourism marketing company on the Gulf Coast of Alabama in a hybrid role that took me all over the organization and the Southern U.S. And even before that, I spent three years in London, England pursuing my undergraduate degree in International Relations with Media and Cultural Studies at Kingston University. Don’t be fooled, though, I originally hail from somewhere in the DC suburbs of Northern Virginia.
In my International Education Management studies, I’m interested in promoting inclusion and diversity, internationalization in early education, and emerging technology in education. At this moment in my life, you can probably find me exclusively in the library when I’m not bopping around the Digital Learning Commons (DLC). In other moments of my life, you can find me out riding my bike, at museums, traveling, attending shows or cultural events, working my way through my movie watchlist, on the soccer field, with my family and friends, swimming, reading historical fiction and magical realism novels, cooking, or in my bed taking a siesta.
