Hello! My name is Jessica Murillo-Rosales and I am a Sociology major with a minor in Women and Gender Studies. After graduation, I’m excited to take a vacation before heading to grad school. I’m also excited to apply to be an Intern at the United Nations. My desire to go to graduate school was due to my belief that knowledge is liberation. Without the continuation of education, I feel like I would find myself and my life boring.
