Elaine Montes - Peer Study Abroad Advisor
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!
Yenifher Mendoza - Peer Study Abroad Advisor
Hello, My name is Yenifher Mendoza and I’m a first generation student. I’m currently a junior majoring in Society, Ethics & Human Behavior (SEB). I will be studying abroad this coming summer in Rome, Italy. As a first generation, I have 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.
