"One of the greatest things about the University of Florida is the diversity of the student body and the diversity of programs that are available.

"My MALAS degree and related internships gave me the foothold into my current career. While in the MALAS program I interned at the State Department. I didn’t know it at the time, but that internship introduced me to two of my future bosses. When I graduated from the MALAS program, I immediately moved to Washington, D.C. to start the Hispanic Division Huntington Fellowship Program at the Library of Congress."Read Wendy's Full Interview!
