From the Classroom to the Courtroom: Changing Career Goals

I learned many things while interning as an English language teaching assistant at Universidad Alberto Hurtado this summer – including that I want a career in a field outside of teaching. My eight weeks in Santiago, Chile, however, proved to be a valuable experience for a number of other reasons. Between leading workshops, completing independent projects, and learning about Santiago’s politics and history, my summer experience at UAH helped me to better define my career goals towards the legal sector and grow in ways that I can apply directly a law career.
