Hello! My name is Eliana Carrera and I am a senior studying Latin American Studies, Global Studies, and Spanish! I studied abroad with the IDEAS program in Guatemala for two summers and can honestly say that it changed my life. I was able to immerse myself in another culture, live with a loving host family, and develop my Spanish speaking skills. My second summer I had a unique opportunity of studying an indigenous language called Kaqchikel. My time abroad helped me realize my career goals of wanting to work at a grassroots level and with human rights in Latin America. I love working as a Peer Advisor so I can help students see the amazing opportunities that come with studying abroad!
