My Name is Elsa Natalia Carrillo, I came from El Salvador six years ago and am an incoming Freshman
pursuing a degree in International Relations. I graduated from James A Foshay Learning Center with the Superintendent’s High Honor Rolls this past June. When I was a freshman in high school I began playing the trumpet in the Foshay Concert Band and Jazz Band, and during my senior year, I became Vice-President of the Music Department. In my junior year of high school, I created a Zoom Tutoring program for Latin American students, ranging from elementary school to college, at the entry-level of the English Language. During my senior year, I became a teacher’s assistant and student tutor for the English Development Program which gave me the opportunity to teach students who recently immigrated to the United States how to speak English easier.
Because I cherish education and come from a country where not everyone has the same opportunities, I decided to pursue a Bachelor’s Degree in International Relations at USC. I plan to continue my education and get My Ph.D. to be able to work for the United Nations in Public Diplomacy. My goal is to create programs and raise money to build schools for kids and adults who never had the chance to learn how to write and read in rural Latin American communities. It is my dream to give back to the country that raised me.
