Faculty Spotlight: Marisabel Irizarry
Marisabel Irizarry has been a humanities professor at Seminole State since 2003. She has extensive experience traveling abroad, visiting 13 countries in the last 13 years.
In January 2009, Irizarry and four other Americans spent five weeks in India as part of the Rotary Foundation's Group Study Exchange program. While there, they experienced the country's culture and institutions, observed how their careers are practiced abroad, exchanged ideas and developed professional relationships.
In addition to India, Irizarry has traveled to countries such as England, Italy, France, Austria and the United Arab Emirates. She was born in Puerto Rico.
Her goal, she says, is to visit at least one new country a year until she is "physically unable to travel anymore."
"When you travel, you learn that there is no one right way of doing things," she says. "You learn that people everywhere want the same basic things out of life, regardless of where they live. We are all more alike than we are different — there is no 'us' and 'them.'"
Irizarry has a Master of Arts degree in Latin American Studies from Georgetown University.
