University Relations Representative in Austin, United States
Born in the Dominican Republic, Alvaro migrated to the New York Tri-State area at the age of ten and now calls Austin his home.
Alvaro graduated from Montclair State University (MSU) in the fabulous state of New Jersey. After college, Alvaro worked for MWW Group, a marketing and public relations firm, where he worked on corporate responsibility programs for well-known world brands. Subsequently, Alvaro found himself back at his alma matter, MSU, working on study abroad programming as well as planning the logistics for the university's International Disney College Program.
There, Alvaro fell head over heels with the international education field and decided to pursue his M.A. at NYU where he worked for the university's Office of International Students and Scholars.
Alvaro is an avid supporter of studying abroad having studied abroad at Reading, England at MSU and more recently studying in Puebla, Mexico on an NYU sponsored program researching the bi-national existence of Mexican migrant farm workers in the U.S. As the representative for New Jersey and New York, Alvaro is thrilled to help students realize that global education can be a powerful life-changing experience for them and that ISA offers them the opportunity to embark on their own global adventure.
