International Student Association Coordinator (ISA)

Picture of Laura Flores

Hi there! I’m Laura Flores from Bogota -Colombia. I’m the International Students Affinity Coordinator, and I’m majoring in Digital Marketing at BC. My experience as an international student has been amazing because I love meeting new people! 

My motivations are being a leader, mentor, support, and friend to international students here at BC, while creating cross-cultural experiences. I work closely with the International Student Association to engage with students from all over the world. 

Some of my hobbies are meditating, reading, hiking, listening to podcasts, dancing and hanging out with friends. 

Some tips that I have for international student are: engage with other students, never be shy to express yourself. Participate in on-campus activities and don’t take things too serious, college is a lot of fun!
