The people I met were all passionate and I learned what true dedication means. In talking with them, exchanging ideas, and learning new perspectives, I have come to appreciate the little things and treasure what I love. I am confident in saying that study abroad has been an eye-opening experience and that I've grown both personally and professionally.
Conducting research abroad has helped me reach my career goals as a socially engaged social science researcher. Developing connections with professors at UNAM while conducting bibliographical research entirely in Spanish expanded my capacity to contribute to scholarly debates with a transnational perspective. Staying in Mexico City for an entire year allowed me to develop strong relationships, not just academically, but also with civil society organizations working around my areas of concern.
Within three months in Queensland, I was able to conduct two full research projects on North Stradbroke Island in Moreton Bay and Heron Island in the southern Great Barrier Reef. Australia could not have come at a more perfect time in my personal and educational life. I am so grateful to have had this opportunity.
