My passion for Spanish language and culture began in high school after reading a poem called “A Julia de Burgos”. Once I discovered the beauty and poetic nature of the language, I realized I had to learn more about this culture. While at the University of Louisville, I had the opportunity to spend a year in Sevilla where I studied at La Universidad de Sevilla. I had an amazing experience, but found it difficult to integrate into the culture since most of my friends were Americans who were in the same program. I always wished that I had the opportunity to meet more native speakers and make more Spanish friends.
I love the uniqueness of Match Immersion at Live N Learn. Here the focus is the student first and the end goal is building lifelong friendships across borders. Now, I’m fortunate enough to get the opportunity to create an immersive experience for others that I had always wished I had myself.
