Briza Cardenas

Administrative Assistant

Get to know me in three:

My home away from home:
Out of all the places I’ve traveled Peru has given me a different experience each time I’ve visited. You can find mountains, jungles, cities and beaches all throughout the country. And best of all, the food is to die for.
The values that influence me:
Integrity and Perseverance. My parents came here with absolutely nothing. They both worked hard and kept pushing forward no matter what obstacles they faced hoping for a better life for my brother and me. They have always told us to work hard for what we want but most importantly, to stay honest and true to ourselves.
My diversity story:
My grandpa is from the Andes Mountains, Huari. He is one of the few people in our family that knows the native language, Quechua. I hope to learn some of it before he goes.
