Major: Nursing
Class of 2023

My name is Wendy Blanco. My intended major is Nursing, I am looking to specialize in Dermatology. Being a Latina, I am aware that the richness of Latin American culture is the product of many influences such as; music, languages, food and religious beliefs from other ethnicity groups. In fact, this is was what drew my curiosity of the world itself! Why do I want to become a Global Scholar? It is simply because becoming a Global Scholar to me is more than just traveling, it is the process of being engaged to broaden my perspective with an intercultural focus, building a network, and having a learning experience that can help make an impact in the world for future generations.
