IPSL Masters student volunteering with children in Colombia

Meet IPSL'S Newest Student Ambassador!

Gabriela Perez Mendez (Gaby) is a recent alum of anIPSL program in Latin America


My story: Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru…
 
Growing up in the United States as the daughter of a Puerto Rican

mother, I always understood the importance of values and customs.

I like to call my home ``Baby Puerto Rico”, because I may not have

been raised there, but my mom brought her culture and traditions

with her when she moved to Indiana.

 

When I started Kindergarten I did not know any English and I

struggled communicating even with the Spanish speaking faculty,

since we had different dialects. Being raised in what feels like

this in between is what I believe sparked that interest in other cultures,

especially  South America and led me to participate in an IPSL

Study Abroad program for a semester in Colombia, Ecuador and Peru

through Butler University.

Word of advice:
Not making a decision is still a choice, you decided to not do anything. The only person stopping us from really going out there and experiencing the world is ourselves. Being able to step out of our comfort zone and go that extra mile if needed to achieve our goals, is always worth it. We must never forget that the storms never stop, but neither do the rainbows. Keep going, take risks, ask questions, and knock on the doors till they open.

I would love to talk about YOU going abroad. Feel free to contact me at info@ipsl.org.
