Hi everyone, My name is Sabrina and I am a first year student in the College Counseling and Student Development Master's Program. I studied abroad to 3 different countries during the short-term Laos, Thailand, and Malaysia program. I am passionate in helping students find their dream destination, especially encouraging students of color to go study abroad!

Travel Tip :  Push yourself out of your comfort zone! You will be surprised by the things you experience and the lifelong connections you can make just by doing this. 

Hola! My name is Karen Ortiz, I am an International Relations major and Political Science minor. I studied abroad in South Africa in the Spring of 2020 and it was an awesome experience that changed my life. Traveling abroad sparked my interest in travel and culture. As a global mentor, my mission is to help students see the value of studying abroad so they too can experience what I did.
