Prime Minister’s Scholarship for Latin America, iWinterMX Global Business Programme
My name is Caitlin, and I am studying a Bachelor of Global Studies and a Bachelor of Arts Conjoint!
I applied for this trip to Mexico for the iWinter Programme with Tec de Monterrey because Christina pushed us to apply for it in International Business 306. It seemed to be an amazing opportunity to really learn about IB in Latin America from within the region itself, and in particular, Mexico, seeing as we did cover a bit of it in class.
I really want to immerse myself in Mexico’s culture and environment and give 100% in all the activities that will be offered so that I might take this experience and move further with it, whether it be in post-graduate studies or in my career.
When it comes to what I want to do in the future, I go with the flow and let things happen as they come, but hopefully, this trip and my experience will help me in the realm of public policy and improve my Spanish a bit – as that is my second major! And, of course, I want to make new friends – with students in Mexico and the group of wonderful people I will be travelling with!
