Luiza Guazzelli is number one in her class at Long Branch and plans to major in Civil Engineering. At Long Branch High School she is involved with an after-school volunteering group called PACES “Participating Around the Community to create an Environment of Success”
She was able to take advantage of the opportunities offered to her in a foreign country . One of the most recent opportunities allows her to take part in a civil engineering project that is ongoing in her town through her high school engineering class.
Her experience with moving and studying in another country and the difficulties and benefits she found can help other students when deciding to study abroad.
