Rosa found RWU when she least expected it. Already a college sophomore, Rosa attended an Open House at RWU with her younger cousin and immediately fell in love with campus. She applied as a transfer student and the rest is history. Since then, the International Relations major was a mentor to high school students through the Bridge to Success Program, a student researcher in the Anthropology/Sociology department and was crowned Miss Rhode Island Latina. Rosa is championing opportunities for young Latin women and acting as a community ambassador for global issues.
