Luceth Escandell graduated in December of 2018 with majors in Human Biology and Spanish and Latin American Studies. She now works as an Information and Assistance Specialist at the Aging and Disability Resource Center of Brown County.
Why did you decide to major in Human Biology? Spanish and Latin American Studies? I decided to major in Human Biology, because I am passionate about health and wellness, understanding how the body works, diseases and its management. I decided to major in Spanish and Latin American Studies, because I missed out on growing up in my country of origin, Colombia, and thinking that I would never learn about the history, culture, literature, cinema and much more of where I come from sounded like I would end up being very culturally confused later on in life.
What academic experience or accomplishment are you most proud of? I am very proud of having been able to graduate with honors in the major, and having the chance to combine both fields of study into one big project to finish off my undergraduate career.
What is an important goal or accomplishment you are currently working on? I am currently working on obtaining my Master’s of Science in Health and Wellness Management. If all goes as planned, I will be graduating spring of 2021.
What do you do for fun? I love watching movies during my free time. When I am not working or volunteering out in the community, you can find me watching movies.
What else do you want people to know about you? The educational experience UWGB has provided me with, is something that I will never be able to express the immense gratitude I feel. All faculty, staff and students have offered me incredible support and learning experiences.
