At St. Lawrence

Major: History
Minor: Spanish

I was a history major with a minor in Spanish. I completed a history honors thesis with Dr. Evelyn Jennings during my senior year which focused on Cuba in the nineteenth century. I used letters from a Cuban family (these documents can be found in the Hernández Collection in the Owen D. Young Library’s Special Collections) to investigate the effect of Cuba’s development within a “transnational” setting on the island’s society and culture. I was able to use the skills from my Spanish minor, along with guidance from Dr. Jennings and Dr. Steven White, to translate some of the letters from Spanish to English.

After Graduation

I am currently attending University of New Hampshire School of Law (formerly Franklin Pierce Law Center) in Concord, NH.
