    Hi! Ruth! I am so happy I found your blog, I am a CIA, NY alumni from Dominican Republic and I have been accepted to intern at Martin’s towards the end of the year. I am so curious about so many things that I’m just excited I found your blog. I hope you can answer back this comment so we can get in contact and talk a little about your experience.

    Hi Ruth…found your blog thanks to the Jefferson Foundation Annual Report and would love to hear more about what you’ve been up to in the years since you helped me pass my Spanish proficiency exam for my PhD. 🙂 Drop me a line if you have a chance!
