Croft Senior Spotlight - Abby Bruce
Saltillo, MS – Spanish – Latin America (Study abroad: Perú) – Social and Cultural Identity
Post-graduation, I am hoping to work in either economic and community development, higher education administrative work (study abroad advising; international student coordinator; student affairs), or international business. Although these professional fields may seem very different, they all link personal interaction and relationship building with technical skills. I would love to relocate to somewhere where Spanish is the dominant language or at least prevalent, whether that be another country or a region in the United States with a large Hispanic population, so that I can continue to utilize what I know and improve my proficiency.
In my free time, I enjoy hiking, singing, and searching for opportunities to speak and practice Spanish (hanging out with Ole Miss international students as a Global Ambassador, tutoring a 3rd grade ELL student from Ecuador, and watching Spanish movies and TV shows).
