I moved to New Orleans from the San Francisco Bay Area in the summer of 2012. During college, I had the opportunity to study abroad in two different destinations, Berlin and Paris, and fell in love with international education. I personally believe that studying in another country is one of the most formative experiences in one's life, and is so important to be competitive in this ever-globalizing world. I am excited to speak with prospective students and their families about life in America and New Orleans, and to guide them through the admissions process. If you are willing to jump at this chance for personal and academic growth, I think you will find UNO to be an excellent fit!

Hola! I am from San Pedro Sula, Honduras and arrived 7 years ago to New Orleans to get my graduate degree from UNO. From that moment and on I knew New Orleans would become my second home and I loved it! As a UNO student, you get to explore so many opportunities on campus to grow as a professional and a leader. It's been a great journey and a blessing for me to go from being an international student to being part of the UNO staff team after graduation. I love that I get the opportunity to help other international students connect easily to UNO, share my experiences with them, and help them make the application process smoother. I enjoy traveling to Latin America on behalf of UNO to personally meet with school counselors, students, and parents interested in learning about UNO, campus life, the city of New Orleans, and our outstanding academic programs and great scholarships. We can't wait to meet you next! So please do not hesitate to contact me in English or Spanish if you need any help or have any questions about what is it is like to be a UNO Privateer!
