BTE Student Stories

Student Ambassador Leslie Angelica Campos Buendia

Leslie proudly represented Mexico City as a student ambassador at ABTS 2018 in Lisbon, Portugal! While there, she earned an Intercultural Fluency badge by completing coursework in intercultural work skills, and by showing those skills in working with an international team of students to put together a STEM2D demonstration activity.

My Favorite BTE memory is…

La vez que nos llevoron a la planta de Johnson & Johnson a conocer todo lo que se realiza en un lugar como es para producir un bien general que procura ser de la mejor calidad.

My favorite memory of BTE is when they took us to the Johnson & Johnson plant and we got to learn all about what that they do to produce products of the best quality.

To me, BTE has meant…

Una oportunidad muy grande de aprendizaje en el area social y laboral, asi como las carreras que existen para ayudar en el mundo de salud.

To me, BTE has been a huge opportunity to learn about social and work subjects, like careers that help the world in the area of healthcare.

The most important thing I will take away from BTE is…

Definitivamente fue el poder relacionarme con gente que opina distinto a mi, aceptar sus diferentes puntos de vista y usi poder llegar a crear algo que ninguno deseaba o pensaba.

The most important thing that I learned in BTE is definitely the ability to relate to people with different opinions than mine, to accept different points of view, and the power to believe in things that I never could have imagined before the program. 

Thanks to my time in BTE and at ABTS, in the future I will…

Es una de las cosas nuevas que realize y sigo aprendiendo cada día más, y esto me sirue para en un futuro trabajar en armonía, mastrar mis inquietedes, poder autoevaluarme y apreciar otras culturas.

I realized that I can continue to learn every day. This will help me in the future to work harmoniously with others, self-evaluate, and appreciate other cultures.
