Giuliana Iamele, from Argentina, is studying Psychology at Mesa Community College

My name is Giuli, I'm 25 years old. I was born in Argentina, but I lived most of my life in Germany. My father is Argentine, my mother is Brazilian, and I lived in both countries until the age of 10, which is how I learned how to speak Spanish and Portuguese. Later we moved to Germany where I learned German and English. After I graduated high school, I went to London as an Au-Pair, where I was able to practice more English. In 2017 I traveled with my best friend to the U.S. for the first time. Here, I met my current husband James, who came to visit my family after my trip to the U.S. I decided to come and live in the U.S. with James and pursue my dream of studying psychology here. In January 2019 I finally started my Associates's Degree at MCC and will finish it in December. I am hoping to transfer to a 4-year University next year to finish my Bachelor's Degree. Read more

The Epilogue to My Time at SRJC

Meet Student Blogger Emilija Sarma from Latvia

I fell in love with Fayetteville quite quickly, and most every student I know loves it like that, too. It sneaks up on you — you don’t quite expect it. Until one day, you wake up, and you realize you're in the chillest, sunniest, and friendliest town you could ever hope to go to grad school. Read more
