Eva Garza Ruiz

“My name is Eva. I grew up in Mexico and then moved to El Paso, Texas to go to university. I wanted to study abroad in a non-traditional study abroad destination, and I chose South Africa. Coming here has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. South Africa is an amazing country, full of history, landscapes and cultures. This country has captured my heart, and if you decide to come, I am pretty sure you’ll fall in love with everything this country has to offer.” Eva studies international business at the University of Texas at El Paso, and is currently studying abroad at University of Johannesburg in South Africa.

SunJung Park

“I am SunJung Park from South Korea. I also go by Sunny! I am a junior at Ewha Womans University, where I study history. I really love to travel and study abroad because it gives me precious memories and helps me grow. I especially love world history because I can learn various views of different cultures and languages when I study their own history! I am really happy to come to the U.S. as an exchange students through ISEP and I will never forget this memory.” Sunny is currently abroad at East Stroudsberg University in the United States.

Areli Enriquez

I’m also the creative type and I enjoy doing anything that involves putting my creative skills to test. I’m Mexican-American so growing up I’ve had the best of both worlds! I will be studying fashion in the city of Milano, which is one of the things I am most excited about since it is one of my passions. I’m just a 21-year-old trying to see and experience the world in every way possible.” Areli is a business marketing major from the University of Texas at El Paso, and is currently studying abroad at Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore in Italy.
