My name is Karla Aguilar and I am a current Senior at the University of Texas double majoring in Plan II Honors and Accounting with a minor in Chinese. I am a first-generation American and a first-generation college student. While attending UT, I have had the opportunity to participate in a Division of Diversity and Community Engagement study abroad Maymester in Cape Town, South Africa in the summer of 2018. I have decided to continue my studies abroad and will be going to Madrid, Spain in the Spring of 2019 to attend the Universidad Pontificia Comillas for a whole semester. Aside from studying abroad, I have also participated in business organizations–International Business Students Association and EY Accounting Ambassadors Program–as well as the PALS student organization. As my time at UT continues, I hope to grow my involvement in both the local and global community through internships and new organizations.
