Student Profile - Annika Brakebill
"It was always a goal of mine to go abroad and I wanted to keep working on my Spanish. I chose Chile over Spain because I had never spent time in South America and it was more mysterious and exciting to me than Europe."
Student Profile - Priya Chatwani
"As a computer science major, I really enjoyed seeing the impact of technology in Chile, specifically with regards to urban planning because I took a Sustainable Cities and Transportation class with German Correa. I wrote a 15-page research paper in Spanish comparing and evaluating the smart city initiatives in Santiago and Rio de Janeiro, and I am now more aware of the importance of involving users and their feedback in every stage of development of a technological product."
