Global UGRAD Panama REALLY loves their Global UGRAD posts, which makes us REALLY happy! We are excited to share with you below the updates of many of our Panamanian Global UGRAD alumni.
After returning home upon the completion my Global UGRAD journey, I continued my education as a senior student at the Universidad Tecnológica de Panamá. Today I stand with my Global UGRAD Postcard in my graduation ceremony, being the computer systems engineer with the highest score in my university! Now I am embarking on the next phase of my life, as I will soon begin my master of science in computer science at the Georgia Institute of Technology this fall in the United States.
I went to Lincoln University of Pennsylvania, and I found my Global UGRAD post among some sheets in my senior seminar folder. Today, I took it to the school where I am currently teaching English, and I took a picture with my counseling group, 6°B, while we were in our writing class.
A little Panamanian dreamer with a can-do spirit was always accompanied by my Global UGRAD Post. Taking her to enchanted places that will be never be forgotten!
Keep your dreams alive.
We were fortunate to meet up (Ricardo couldn’t make it due to distance since it happened suddenly, though he was present in our minds) and share our experiences abroad. Furthermore, I keep documents from the US, including my Global UGRAD post which I treasure. As for my life, I graduated from BA in English in 2016, and I am currently working as an English teacher in a remote area of my home country passionate doing what I love.
I have recently graduated from a B.S. industrial and management engineering. Currently I am working as a Beauty Product Executive for CHANEL in Latin America. As for this year, I am planning to develop my professional strengths and in a near future start looking forward to studying my Master’s degree, mainly oriented towards business. To all my fellow Global UGRADers, my best wishes on your lives and projects, hoping that someday we will all meet again. Hugs!
Sadly, I lost my Global UGRAD post, but that gave the Global UGRADs from our exchange year (2014-2015) a reason to get together! I am due to graduate from my bachelor in food engineering this August; in the meantime, I am working full-time as a quality supervisor in a company that manufactures food products for the Panamanian market.
Hello Global UGRADers, I just want to know how are you doing and what have you done in these three years after our Global UGRAD experience? I have finally graduated, and I had the opportunity to pursue a career in my field, which is teaching. Now I am working in a new personal project, but I will tell you in my next post. Now it is your turn to tell me what you are doing. It is always nice to know about my friends from other countries. Hugs from Panama.
It is always great to be able to get together with these amazing people; it has been a while since the Global UGRAD experience and a few things have happened. I have graduated as civil engineer; I got a job in a multinational construction company. Now I’m living in the capital of my country which leads me to tell you that unfortunately I don’t have my UGRAD post now, but it is safe in my hometown. I’m looking forward to reading about you guys, what you have been doing these years, your projects and goals.
