Multicultural & immigrant experience:

Originally from Argentina, I migrated to the U.S. as an adult. That makes me bilingual and bicultural. I went through the whole immigration process and became a U.S. citizen in 2006. I also have worked with immigrants in different community service projects. As a result, I feel confident working with international students and other ethnically diverse populations.
