Laura Paz has been at YSU for the last three years, travelling back to her family in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, during the summer months. This summer, though, she will be travelling to Barcelona to be an intern for an interior design company, BMLT Lighting Design. Fortunately, she doesn’t anticipate any language barriers. “They have a different accent, that’s all,” says Paz, now a junior at YSU majoring in Interior Merchandising.
When she’s not studying, she is on the YSU swim team, swimming the butterfly. In between swimming and schoolwork, Laura loves Latin music and dancing. After graduation, she plans to continue her education and earn her master’s degree with the eventual hopes of designing landscaping.
