"I remember being an excited, nervous, yet eager to learn 17-year-old, fresh out of high school from Mexico. I held an F1 Visa to study in the United States. While taking ESL, Marketing, and Business classes at Mission, I started working at the IIS Office as a Student Assistant. I was proud to be an integral part of the IIS staff helping international students navigate college life. One of the highlights was helping Danish students who were on a one-semester study abroad program at Mission. I was a student ambassador and helped coordinate housing and social activities."
