The best part of my journey in Nicaragua was the friendly atmosphere of this country. I lived unforgettable moments and met extraordinary people. From day one at the KU Latin American campus, the serenity of the environment made me feel this would be a welcoming place to grow and learn. I believe that pursuing an education sets a good example for family and friends. I have come to the conclusion that if you truly desire something, there will always be a way to make it happen.

Being part of the KU family has been a great blessing. Not only did I acquire high quality education, but my experience helped me become a better person all around. I learned priceless lessons through my professors, classmates, and friends. My professors created an interactive and friendly learning environment, making this a gratifying experience. I am especially thankful to Dr. Taboada and Dr. Humphrey for their exceptional knowledge and teaching styles. I also admire the real and deep relationships my professors have with God.

On May 2015, I majored in Political Science thanks to the efforts of my parents.  I chose this major in order to fulfill my profound desire to contribute to the progress in my country, Honduras. The intellectual skills I acquired in my career will be a great foundation for my future success.  Currently, I am an intern for the Human Resources Department at Palabra y Poder, a non-profit organization in Panama. I thank AEISEC, an amazing student leadership association, for giving me this opportunity to expand my knowledge and broaden my horizons.  The knowledge I have gained in all these years has led me to opportunities and situations that I would have never imagined possible.
