The future: What are you plans and how are they related with you Latin American Studies majoy and studies at Bowdoin?
In my ideal world, I would attend grad school, earn a Ph.D, and then teach Latin American history at a college level. I have always been especially interested in the idea of teaching, but my professors at Bowdoin, especially my advisor Allen Wells, and my two other majors have been highly inspirational and have made me want to pursue a career at the undergraduate college level.
