Kristen is a junior from El Paso, TX majoring in Communication with a minor in Spanish. Two of her most meaningful experiences outside the classroom include studying abroad in Segovia, Spain and working with prospective students in the Honors College Ambassadors program. Studying abroad showed Kristen that the world is full of endless possibilities and it has helped her refine her bilingual language capabilities. Serving as an Honors College Ambassador has allowed her to give back by mentoring high school students going through one of the most difficult and confusing times of their life (college decisions). When she is not in class, Kristen loves to take dance classes, do yoga, and hike.
