In the summer of 2015, Mercedes was accepted to travel to Cuba, where she studied the lives of the Cuban people and Cuban society. This experience led to her acceptance to the Nagoya, Japan, study abroad program for Spring 2017, for which she received a Freeman-Asia Scholarship. Mercedes’ leadership experience in the Global LLC as a Executive Council member and treasurer for both Executive Council and Books & Beyond made her a strong candidate for this program. If being in Cuba taught her anything, it is that immersion is the best way to improve language skills.
