Latin American Studies Pre Grad Intern Yvonne Cruz

Yvonne Cruz"As the first person in my family to attend college, I came into the IE program with only a vague idea of what graduate school even was and I was even less certain of whether graduate school was something worth pursing and whether I would be the type of student who could thrive in graduate school. After participating in the program and working with my graduate student mentor, I have a much more defined sense of what I would like to do post-graduation and confidence that I have the skills needed to successful at the graduate level."
