I'm planning on majoring in International Relations. I'm also applying to Columbia Early Decision
As the Secretary of the Model United Nations Club of Commonwealth High School, I attained substantial knowledge about countries' histories, their policies and how they are organized. By recreating and analyzing global diplomatic situations, I got a taste of the world of international relations and diplomacy. My experience in the Model United Nations Club showed me that dialogue can play a significant role in the development and protection of any country. As an American citizen living in Puerto Rico, I feel both a part of the U.S. and apart from the U.S., which has made me sensitive to the cultural differences between Latin America and the U.S. By applying what I have learned in this club and expanding my knowledge of foreign policy through coursework at college, I hope to ultimately be a leader in fostering better cultural understanding between the countries of our Hemisphere through government service.
I'm from PR, by the way :)
