Gabriella Farrell ’21 came to Dickinson because of its strong global-education programming, and she’s gotten involved on campus as a member of the Latin American & Caribbean Club and Model U.N., and as a student-manager for The Clarke Forum for Contemporary Issues. She plans to study abroad through the Dickinson in South America program and, after graduation, to help improve relations among the U.S., Latin America and the Caribbean.

On choosing a major:
In the future I would like to improve relations among the United States, Latin America and the Caribbean. In order to do that, I believe I need to have knowledge of international relations, the region of Latin America and the Caribbean, and the Spanish language. I hope to combine these studies to complete my specific goal.
On choosing Dickinson:
I decided to attend Dickinson because of its study abroad opportunities. I plan to spend my junior year in Ecuador and Argentina through Dickinson’s South America program.
