My name is Isabel Horta. I’m from Southern California, and my family originates from Jalisco, Mexico. I’m currently studying in the nursing program to become a Registered Nurse. The nursing program requires a lot of dedication in time. My hobby is dancing! I have an enormous passion for the art of Hispanic dances. I spent many years involved in learning and teaching Bachata, Salsa, Merengue, and Cumbia. At Holy Names University I have been involved with the Nursing Club, Latinos Unidos, and the Book Selection Committee. I try my best to be a part of the HNU community between my busy schedule. Since my career is so demanding, I never thought studying abroad was a possibility. Thanks to the generosity to my donors and the Rome prize program, I get the privilege to go to ITALY! I’m very grateful for such charismatic people. I hope to take advantage of this trip to learn as most as possible, and it’ll be an experience spent with amazing people.
