Meet Education Abroad Peer Advisor Hannah Latimer-Snell
Meet Education Abroad Peer Advisor Hannah Latimer-Snell

Hannah is an undergraduate senior, double majoring in International Studies: Latin America and Spanish. She recently completed a yearlong study abroad program in Santiago, Chile.  Because of her wonderful experience abroad and passion for Latino/Indigenous culture and history, Hannah plans on continuing her studies and work in Latin America upon graduating from PSU.

The southern part of the Americas has always fascinated Hannah.  A study abroad experience, while being a long time dream, was the perfect opportunity to explore a new culture. She spent 8 full months with a host family in Chile and then an additional 2 months traveling to countries such as Argentina, Peru and Uruguay.

While abroad, Hannah immersed herself in the Chilean culture. She participated in an internship that focused on women’s rights throughout Chile and joined a salsa club to dance and meet Chileans. Because of this, Hannah was able to learn about Chile from the locals. She learned about the harsh dictator and the division he created within the country that continues today. Her experience abroad opened her eyes to the reality of the present and past of the Latin American world and helped her fall in love with the beautiful traditions, culture and people of South America.
