Eva Vazquez

Senior Peer Consultant

Hi! I am a junior, majoring in Spanish and minoring in Education and Global Studies. Last semester I interned with the Fleishman Center and am now a Senior Peer Consultant. My pronouns are she/her/hers and I am from Kingston, NY (which is an hour south of Albany). My plans for the future include becoming a high school Spanish teacher and teaching English abroad. After I graduate in 2023, I plan on taking a gap year and then getting my Masters in Teaching, but I have recently taken an interest in Student Affairs – so who knows!

What are you passionate about?

The most rewarding experience is knowing that I gave somebody the tools they needed to succeed. Whether it’s through advice or resources, I love helping others grow.

What is your best piece of career or professional advice?

Being able to say “no, this isn’t for me” (to a major, job, university, etc.) is just as good as a “yes, this is for me.”

What clubs/organizations are you involved in?

Spanish Language Coordinator for International Language Association
TRIO Mentor for SSS
Phi Sigma Sigma member
