IE Student Worker Profile: Elena Lainez

Hello! My name is Elena and I’m a junior at UCA from Honduras. I’m a psychology major and a music minor, and I am active in groups on campus such as CCM and Psi Chi. I also love chocolate, books, the color blue, playing the piano, and watching musicals. Working at International Engagement is really fun because there’s always a different activity going on, and it’s a great way to help students from all over the world feel like UCA is a home away from home. I started working here this year because I love the diversity on our campus, and I want to help others feel welcome in this family!
