Hometown: Orono, Minnesota
Academic Year: Sophomore
Major: Spanish Education , teaching endorsements in ESL and Bilingual/bicultural education
Minor: Music, Special Education

Things I am Involved in:

Cumbres, a teacher preparation program, and student radio. I am a musician working on recording my EP. I also have been doing some amateur hand modeling work.

My Plan After College:

If my music career doesn’t work out, my plan is to move back to Argentina (I lived there for a gap year after graduating high school) and open up an institute for adults with special needs. They lack programs that help promote independence for adults with special needs, and I hope to open an institute that does that.

Why I Chose UNC:

I knew I wanted to be in Colorado and UNC has a great teacher education program. I also felt right at home when I stepped on campus.

Advice To My Freshman Self:

YOLO leads to irresponsible actions

If you could trade places with any other person for a week, famous or not famous, living or dead, real or fictional, with whom would it be?

Michael Jackson. Only if the dancing and singing skills were included

The Quote I Live By:

“Hakuna Matata”

Favorite Movie:

The Goonies, Transformers, This Is It, The Wedding Planner, Life Size
