Hello fellow children of the sun☼, My name is Hannah Duque. I was brought into this world by my Cuban father and Irish mother. This has been the most tremendous influence in my life; and where my love for culture began. Culture was always a huge part of my life growing up, eating the entire lechon asado on Christmas and finding the cabbage penny on New Years were just the way things were. Growing up I couldn’t possibly understand why other children at school didn’t have an Abuela like me.
Ever since I can remember I have been so incredibly passionate about not only my culture- but experiencing new cultures, traveling, equality, and helping others through education. Which leads me to my own education, I am attending the University of Louisville and I will graduate next year with a double major in Communications and Spanish. I hope to achieve a Masters or Phd soon after. After I finish my schooling, my ultimate goal is to teach internationally, which has been a dream of mine for a long time. Teaching internationally will fill my heart, expand my horizons, and allow me to fully live out my passions in the world.
When I am not at school, I am making my own adventures- large and small, spending time with my family and my boyfriend, and traveling as often as I can.
