“To have interned in a Spanish-speaking environment has really boosted both my Spanish and professional skills. I feel so much more comfortable talking with native speakers, and in the process I got to help the local Hispanic community in Cincinnati. In addition, it's a great experience to share in an interview or resume. I think it's critical to be able to have practice with the Spanish language and Hispanic culture outside the classroom, and I'm so thankful to have been given that opportunity!”
