No more than a two-minute walk from my dormitory, I interned at the center for professional and international experiences of La Universidad del Sagrado Corazon, where I participated in both career and internationalization advising sessions. Although I shadowed this department while it was undergoing unprecedented position transitions, I was able to experience firsthand the magnitude of the entire department as work study and internship positions were allocated to students on a first-come first-serve basis, as well as appropriate study-abroad program advice distributed to those who took initiative on their country of interest. In my case, I participated in the publication and promotion of the international student population to humanize their experiences here in Puerto Rico, through a reflective presentation of their profile and a “day in the life vlog” in their name distributed by the Instagram and Facebook of @Sagradointernacional. In addition, I helped share international content on my private page, contributed to international posters and events, and absorbed the wealth of knowledge provided to complete my daily journals and research related to my accumulated experience at the university.
