The Gift of Opportunity and Education

My name is Lissette Melgar and I am currently a student at CSULB where I am Majoring in Health Science and minoring in Spanish Language. As a Guatemalan-American first generation college student, the opportunity to attend University has been an incredible gift. Growing up in a Spanish speaking home taught me to love Spanish as well as gain an understanding of how valuable it is to be bilingual in the United states. As a Health science major, the ability to be bilingual is of great significance due to the high population of Latinos in my community. Through this realization, I have decided study abroad at the University of Salamanca, Spain. Attending the University of Salamanca would help me challenge my abilities and push me to explore a new culture daily while meeting students from all over the world. The connections and experiences built through study abroad would help me excel in my academic, personal and professional life and help me become a culturally conscious individual.
