The other memorable moment was my study abroad experience in Madrid. Working with T-Oigo and supporting students with hearing impairments in their journey to learn English was impactful and deeply humbling. It underscored the importance of inclusive education and ignited a commitment to making a difference in the lives of others.
What is your favorite place on campus?
Washington Square Park holds a special place in my heart as my favorite spot on campus. Its central location and vibrant atmosphere provided a hub of activity and a sense of belonging.
If you could take one more NYU class today, what would it be?
My favorite class at NYU was undoubtedly "Economic Development & Historical Patterns of Industrialization," which I took during my sophomore year with Professor Ascension Mejorado. In this course, I had the opportunity to collect financial and economic statistics on the Spanish economy during the Eurozone crisis. Analyzing this crisis's social, economic, and political effects on Spanish youth was eye-opening and helped me develop a deeper understanding of global economic dynamics. If I could take one more NYU class today, I would seek out a similar course that combines real-world analysis with academic rigor, as it was an experience that profoundly shaped my academic and personal growth.
