Meet your Resident Director

Born in Seville, and with a degree in Hispanic Philology from the University of Seville, I have worked in various departments of SSA over the years, knowing very well what U.S. students need to make their experience in Seville the adventure of a lifetime and help them mature both academically and personally. My advice is to open your mind and let yourself be carried away by the culture and idiosyncrasies of our city through our teachers and staff, our host families, the walks through our streets, meeting with young Sevillians, etc. In our city you will find a team eager to receive you and welcome you as if you were at home.
