Before starting my career in Academia, I worked as a professional ballet dancer in Cuba, my home country, Costa Rica and the United States. After retiring from dance, I studied Spanish Language & Literature at Transylvania University and then obtained my Master’s and Ph.D. in Hispanic Studies at the University of Kentucky. One of the best memories I have from college was realizing that the world was so interconnected, and that interconnectedness enables us to create knowledge and be part of a community that constantly feeds on each other. For me, being able to create knowledge, no matter how small, is something fascinating and allows us to feel relevant in some way.
One thing I love about Asbury is that it is an institution where faculty and staff members invest in their students. An environment like Asbury’s, where students are loved and challenged, is the perfect formula for future success.
