I am currently an undergraduate student, Class of 2019, studying Linguistics at Duke University. I work with Portuguese, Spanish, and Nahuatl. In the future, I hope to include French and German in my studies here at Duke. I enjoy learning about educational policy and practice internationally, which is why I am excited about this project. I want to make a difference for people who may not have the means to initiate institutional change by themselves. As a native of Mexico and resident of Las Vegas, Nevada, with a scientific background, current linguistic work, and an interest in human development, I provide a variety of different perspectives to the team, along with lots of enthusiasm.
