Hello from sunny Tucson, Arizona, home of the University of Arizona! My name is Valeria Quijada and I am the Global Enrollment Counselor for students in Canada at The University of Arizona. I am originally from Mexico but was raised most of my life in Tucson. I have bachelor’s degree in Global Studies and Spanish Literature from the University of Arizona, and during my time as a student I was part of several student clubs, did 3 different internships at local organizations, worked on campus part-time, and studied abroad in Brazil for 6 weeks learning the language and culture. As an alumni of this institution and as part of the staff, I have in-depth insight on the many offerings and opportunities our university has, and it is a great pleasure to be able to guide our international students, aka future wildcats, and their families during their admission process.
