How has being a graduate from Duke's Romance Studies Department helped shape you personally and/or professionally?

"The Duke in Madrid study abroad program transformed my life. After graduating, I returned to Madrid to master the language and further absorb the culture. My relationship with Spanish and Spain has continued to this day and has a significant influence on my life."

What advice would you give students in Duke's Romance Studies programs?

"Study abroad!!! Wherever and for however long. And while there, do the most you can to integrate into the local culture and advance in the target language."
