Meet the Advisors

Elaine Montes - Peer Study Abroad Advisor

Student, Elaine Montes sitting in front of an Asian temple dressed in a traditional Korean Hanbok.Hello!! I am Elaine, a graduate student here at the UWB pursuing my Master’s Degree in Policy Studies. I have previously studied abroad in Seoul, South Korea for Summer Quarter as an undergraduate and have also had the opportunity to participate in a Faculty-Led Program known as the “Washington D.C. Human Rights Seminar” in Early Fall. I can wholeheartedly say that the highlights of my academic career has been the experiences and skills I have gained learning through these programs. It has taught me many unique things about myself personally and as a student. If you want to figure out how I managed to fit study abroad into my schedule on top of three majors and two minors; make an appointment and swing on by to learn more about the opportunities that await you!

Student, Yenifher Mendoza seating in front of the Eiffel Tower.Hello, My name is Yenifher Mendoza and I’m a first generation student. I’m currently a Senior majoring in Society, Ethics & Human Behavior (SEB). I studied abroad in Rome, Italy. As a first generation, I made it my goal to have the opportunity to study abroad. I decided to apply and got accepted to the Interdisciplinary Studio Art and Italian Culture program offered here at UWB. I am excited to be working with Global Initiatives as a peer advisor. I want to help students who want to make the most out of their college experience, especially those who are interested in studying in another country. I will be here as a resource, so if you have any questions regarding study abroad, I will be more than happy to help you out.
