My Travel Story

The opportunity the exchange student program would allow me to experience a new perspective to how higher education works in a country like Mexico and explore the life I could have had (as a young adult and as a student) if my parents had decided to raise me in Mexico. The content that I intend to study while in Mexico is Law. I want to study in this field so that I can hopefully be an immigration lawyer in Mexico and in the United States. I am also interested in practicing international law and the skills I would want to learn is how to negotiate and advocate for immigrants not only in my my home country (the US), but also in different spanish speaking countries. I grew up going back and forth between Baja California and Washington, but studying in Mexico would add more academically dense substance to my experience with my culture. Studying at U ERRE would immerse me in my culture and help me exlpore the judicial/ educational systems within Mexico.
