    The most important enhancing experiences while at IUP: Studying abroad in Puebla, Mexico, was one of the most enhancing experiences I had while at IUP. I wish I would have been able to stay longer.

    About my major: Majoring in both Anthropology and Sociology allowed me to understand the citizens of the world in a different capacity. Both provide two different perspectives on what shapes people allowing for me to have a well-rounded idea on how I can help.

    HC Impact: Studying abroad to Puebla, Mexico, was a very informative trip, as it allowed me to experience a life much different than my own. I was able to improve my Spanish-speaking skills in order to provide me with another way in which I can reach people.
