¡Que viva Colombia!

Hello everybody.

My name is Luisa Fernanda Grajales and I’m the new Spanish language teaching assistant here at Willamette. I’m Colombian, born and raised in Medellín.I’m a Fulbright scholar and I will be here for a whole year. I really hope to share some of my culture, my customs, and my knowledge of the Spanish language with you. I truly want, at the end of this year, to go back home with a greater understanding of American people and culture. By the way, Medellín is the second largest city in Colombia with an estimated 3.5 million people. It is located in the central mountain range of the Andes and it is the capital of Antioquia’s department. Here are some pictures!

In addition to this, I would love to learn about all the different cultural groups gathered here at Willamette. So, if you see me around the university, just come and say ¡HOLA!

Nos vemos.

In the following video you can get a glimpse of my beautiful city!
