International Fellow in Education

Colegio Diocesano Asuncion de Nuestra Senora | Avila, Spain

November 19, 2017 | The past three weeks have really flown by! I am starting to feel at home here and already dreading the end.. but I don’t have to worry about that quite yet! This past week I have spent more time rotating between different teachers and classrooms and have gotten to see more differences between teachers here […]

Going Deeper into my Research Questions


Floyd Scott Fellow in Psychological Research

University of Georgia Department of Counseling & Human Development Services | Athens, Georgia

November 12, 2017 | This last week I said goodbye to the First year class because they will no longer be meeting for the semester. From now on they will have individual meetings about how the class went, the papers, and grades. I really enjoyed this class because I got to share my experiences with freshmen who still have time to […]

Week 2:
Coffee and Bread


International Fellow in Education

Colegio Diocesano Asuncion de Nuestra Senora | Avila, Spain

November 12, 2017 | I have been eating a lot of bread. I have also been drinking a lot of coffee. It is hard to say no to an opportunity to consume either when they are so good! Bread and other baked goods are always fresh and served at every meal. I am already a big coffee fan, and […]

A Step Closer to Grad School


Floyd Scott Fellow in Psychological Research

University of Georgia Department of Counseling & Human Development Services | Athens, Georgia

November 5, 2017 | This week made me feel a step closer to graduate school. Graduate school will be a big step I hope I will have the opportunity to take. This week also was Day of the Dead (Nov 1st & 2nd) which is one of my favorite holidays. The week started talking about the Day of the  […]

October 29, 2017 | This week was an eventful week for celebrations and people visiting. It was Dr. Delgado-Romero’s birthday and Marjory V ( a graduate student I am helping). I will get into all of that later on! On Monday, I attended the first year course where the students talked about Colorism. Colorism is the discrimination based on […]

Week 3:
Digging into my Latin American Roots


Floyd Scott Fellow in Psychological Research

University of Georgia Department of Counseling & Human Development Services | Athens, Georgia

October 23, 2017 | Food is important to me, and I have been teaching myself how to cook and am actually impressed with what I come up with sometimes. However, going out to eat is fun for me because I love trying food in new places.  I have been able to try out different places to eat. This week, […]

Week 2:
Feeling like a bulldog


Floyd Scott Fellow in Psychological Research

University of Georgia Department of Counseling & Human Development Services | Athens, Georgia

October 15, 2017 | This week was way more busy than last week! I am more settled in and after getting lost on campus and driving the wrong way millions of times I think I got the hang of how Athens and the campus are set up. I live about 20 minutes from campus and, depending on what time I […]

October 8, 2017 | My experience started on Friday, September 29th with a 13-hour road trip to Atlanta with another Cornell student. That weekend turned into a birthday celebration with his family because it was the first time that was able to happen since college. That Sunday I continued my road trip to Athens, Georgia, where the University of […]

Thankfully, I was still able to fit in one last shadow while I was there. I shadowed Dr. Wilson on Tuesday. She is a sports medicine […]
