It has been a long-term dream of mine to travel to Spain and finally be able to put my Spanish skills to use, along with learning more about the Spanish culture and day-to-day life. I am currently taking education classes at the University of Washington, where we have daily discussions surrounding the rights and struggles of immigrants and minorities in the United States.

I am very curious to see how the challenges that minorities face in America compare and contrast to the challenges faced by those in Spain. I hope (My goal is?) to incorporate what I have learned here at the University of Washington, along with what I will learn in Spain, into my studies in education.
