Favorite Quote: 

“If you really are passionate about it, you're just going to find a way to make it happen.” - Keiynan Lonsdale


Watching movies, being in wild nature, deep conversations, hiking, wildlife photography, creating and sharing videos, traveling, anything fitness. 

Why Brandon Thinks You Should Study Abroad: 

We have to face different realities in order to understand the world, ourselves, and what really matters. Studying abroad deeply awakens that spark within you, unleashing your potential, personal growth, and professional success. It also allows you to actively learn and network while traveling! I mean, if you have opportunity, do it.

Favorite Quote: 

"It's a big world out there, it would be a shame not to experience it!" - Jo Andrews


Hiking, travelling, working out ( boxing), watching movies, and quality time with friends and family. 

Why Sofía Thinks You Should Study Abroad: 

It is an unforgettable experience that allows you to discover and define yourself. Experiencing another culture and lifestyle opens your mind and helps you see things with a different perspective. You make longlife friendships, learn new languages, have better career opportunities, and appreciate small things in life.


Alexis Wren

  • France, Perú, Arizona (study away), Costa Rica

Favorite Quote: 

“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes” - Marcel Proust


Running, birdwatching, traveling, hiking, mountain biking, reading, baking.

Why Alexis Thinks You Should Study Abroad: 

Studying abroad, even for a short period, opens your eyes to seeing your home country from a new perspective, challenges the ideals that have been instilled in you since birth, deepens your empathy, and just overall makes you a more well-rounded person.

Favorite Quote: 

When there's a will, there's a way" George Herbert


I love listening to music and learning, I'm always reading and trying to learn something new. I'm very active and love to be active, be present and explore nature as much as possible. 

Why Katherine Thinks You Should Study Abroad: 

I have learned that the most successful interactions occur when technical expertise aligns with our humanity; empathy, curiosity, patience, respect, and honesty are key ingredients for success. The most successful professionals I have encountered have embraced new perspectives and exposed themselves to novel approaches that foster growth.


Diana Corboba

Vice President & Director of Academics

Studied Abroad in:

  • Pennsylvania, Uruguay

Favorite Quote: 

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit”. - Aristotle


Dancing, learning, traveling, cultural activities, personal development.

Why Diana Thinks You Should Study Abroad: 

Maybe you might not experience right away, but study abroad raises your awareness, and broadens your mind. You will notice that the experience will come again and again many times, i.e.  when you make personal decisions, business agreements. It's not only about learning, it's about presence, and living with all your senses something that will definitely last a lifetime.


Since 2019, we have collaborated with local and international partners to transform more than 1000 students' lives through study abroad.
