Like many international students, answering the question “Where are you from?” is no easy task, but here it goes: I was born in California, lived in Mexico for 6 years, Ecuador for 2 years, and Brazil for 7 years (where I graduated from high school). I originally heard about Elon through my high school counselor, and decided it would be a good idea to visit one summer. As soon as I stepped foot on campus, an overwhelming sense of “home” set in, and I knew Elon was the right place for me.
After I graduated in 2010, I went on to work in the sports industry and received my Masters in Sports Management from Georgetown University. Now, I am back where I belong helping other international students navigate the college search process and find their way to Elon.
When I’m not working I enjoy travelling, indulging in new cuisines, and making all those Skype calls to friends and family around the world.
Elon’s warm, welcoming community is just one of the many things I love about it. I hope you get a chance to visit soon and experience it for yourself!
