Your Professors Will Be the Key to Your Future

Picture of Ligia standing at the conferenceHi! My name is Ligia Espinoza, and I am an International Student from Nicaragua. I am here to share my story about how I was able to receive an internship with a Transportation Economics and Logistics Research firm through the help of my UCO professor.

The United States is known as the “land of opportunity” – however, UCO is the place where opportunities oftentimes come with a helping hand. My story started when I came to UCO in August of 2017 and started pursuing an Operations and Supply Chain Management degree. At this time, I quickly realized that making connections was going to be key to my success as a student and for my future as a professional.
