"By engaging youth through scholarships and speaking tours, as well as informing the public about the unique circumstances of Latinos through research and advocacy, USHLI serves the Hispanic population living in the US, and seeks to create the leaders of tomorrow. As a Mexican national living in the United States myself, I am keenly aware of the issues that USHLI addresses, and have a firm conviction to work for their resolution. My internship consists of 3 main responsibilities: First of all, I support the Institute by conducting research for this year’s edition of the Almanac of Latino Politics. Second, I provide support for coordinating USHLI’s annual conference, which will take place in February, as well as their speaking tours, which take place year round all over the country. Lastly, I perform administrative duties in order to support their relatively small staff. [...] This along with the Jesuit ideals enshrined in every one of Loyola’s programs, have instilled in me a desire to actively participate in improving the lot of others. Through my work with USHLI, I put this knowledge and these beliefs into practice every day."
