Two UCCI students will be saying Hola to Spain this summer, as they head to Europe to enhance their Spanish language skills.
Lacey Quesada and Lydia Ebanks were chosen to represent Cayman in Malaga for three weeks, studying at the eSPEAK academy. They will be living with a local family, for them to not only speak Spanish but to understand the Spanish culture.
“I was super thrilled to find out that I won the scholarship, I think that Spain is a beautiful country, it’s rich in culture, it’s got a different language and I can’t wait to get there honestly,” said Lacey Castro-Quesada a student at UCCI.
“I’m hoping that it will widen their horizons, it will broaden their concept of the world and what exists, what’s out there, it should help to foster tolerance, because they would get to experience other people apart from their own.” Said Erica Gordon, Chairman of Arts & Humanities at UCCI.
These two students are the second group from UCCI to study in Spain, the first student was in 2011.
