2021Home Institution: Heinz Programming Area:
My name is Amanda Latta and I am a junior at Waynesburg University. I am pursuing a double major in Political Science and International Culture as well as a double minor in Psychology and History. I am currently in the VIH program with the 2021 cohort and am hoping to study in Florianopolis, Brazil. Along with my classes, I work as a Resident Assistant and am also a member of Pi Gamma Mu honors society for the Social Sciences. One of the things that has always inspired me is discovering how to solve problems by understanding an individual’s thought process. My goal for after graduation is uncertain, but ideas include teaching English in Thailand, working as a translator in Brazil, or joining the United Nations. I have already learned so much through the Vira I. Heinz program and am certain that this is only the beginning.
