Paula Rivera Santos, Program Manager, Hanyang University

Born and raised in the island of Puerto Rico, Paula’s first experience abroad was when she went on a gastronomic trip in Europe during her junior year in college. Upon her return home, her passion for travel and adventure led her to earn a bachelor’s degree in Hotel Management in the University of Ana G. Mendez in Puerto Rico. With hopes of exploring her options of study abroad she discovered ISA, which presented her with the opportunity to venture off to South Korea as a marketing intern. Having had this life changing adventure, she realized that her eagerness to learn about different cultures had grown bigger and that she wanted to help others achieve their dreams of studying abroad.
