It has been 10 years since our Class graduated. When I remember that exact moment, I feel so thankful to God. The Latin American Campus did not just give me a professional career; it gave me a family for life. Brothers and sisters in faith who strengthened my Catholic beliefs. All of these have helped me in both my personal and professional life.
I started my University journey in the Language institute where I met part of my family (my friends for life). They were who invited me to go to retreats, to pray the rosary and go to daily mass. While I received my professional education, I had the opportunity to participate in many extra curriculum activities. For instance, I was a member of The Mission Trip Club, The Business Club, The True Devotion to Mary Club and I practiced taekwondo. However, my favorite experiences happened in my household “The New Covenant” where I even had the blessing to be an Ovejita mama (household coordinator). I also enjoyed being part of the residence life department, as a Resident Assistant. Working in the dorms gave me the opportunity to connect with students by helping and listening to their needs. I deeply enjoyed all the little moments I lived in my lovely Nicaraguita. More importantly, I will never forget the life lessons and college experiences I lived with the people that might not be around anymore.
I got a B.A. in Business Administration with a Minor in Marketing. I started my career path in a fascinated industry the FMCG (Fast-moving consumer goods). I had the honor to be part of an amazing company, Unilever, where I work for 8 years. I had four different positions (two in El Salvador) until I was promoted to Costa Rica. God and our Blessed Lady Mary of Guadalupe have always led my career. Right now, I am part of another amazing company called Essity, as a member of the Regional Marketing team.
As I continue growing professionally, I remember the 17-year-old girl that got into the Latin American Campus. She was full of dreams and hope that one day she would understand the real meaning of happiness, which as she learned in a wonderful class, is to “see God face to face”.
