UF in the Dominican Republic is UF’s first and longest-running international service learning program, and our most intensive and least expensive 6-week immersion experience in a Spanish-speaking country! Here I share some photos of this year.
Here I share the final project of my course Spanish in the community. In this class, we explore the historical, political and economic reasons that have contextualized Spanish American immigration in the United States from the 19th century to the present. The final project is achieved thanks to the collaboration of Mrs. Deborah Hendrix and the "Samuel Proctor Oral History Program". Please, share! Thank you!

Traveling the world is one of the most enriching activities. When we travel, we learn how to see the world from other perspectives. We learn, for example, to savor new flavors, to hear new rhythms, to experience delight in new colors. We also discover interesting new faces and decipher incredible customs. Traveling is, in short, about growing. At the end of each trip, we return home with a suitcase full of new hopes and knowledge.
But... What happens when we do not return home? What happens when that trip goes on, perhaps, for a lifetime? Why do people abandon everything and start from zero in an unknown place? Why does one leave one´s country to start another life far away? What is the process of ongoing learning like for the immigrants?
In this video, we explore the lives of five Hispanic American immigrants in the state of Florida, United States. We look at the push factors that forced them to emigrate and how they have managed to adapt to the new political and economic system of our country. Join us on this personal and human journey, and discover with them what it feels like to buy that unforgettable one-way ticket.
