Photo Event - Portuguese

Romance Languages Alumni Invited for Portuguese Flagship Professional Development Event

Group Picture Flagship Alumni

The Portuguese Flagship Program (PFP) proudly hosted a Professional Development event recently that brought together current PFP students and nearly 30 alumni from cohorts dating back to our very first overseas capstone group in 2013. Among the panelists, we had Romance Languages Majors: Mateo Villa '14, Rachel Osnos '14, Taylay Obeng-Akrofi' 15, Natalia Sanchez '16, Alejandro Espinosa '17, Jamie Sauerbier '19, and Baleigh Preston '21. 

During the event, current students were able to interact with and hear from alumni in all types of professional fields, learning how PFP played a central role in helping these formers students pursue successful careers. As educators, we were proud to confirm that so many of our alumni continue to use Portuguese frequently to navigate their careers, to pursue personal goals and to maintain and make new friendships across the globe and here at home. 

If you are a PFP student, look out for more mentorship opportunities to internationalize your career and to enhance your resume. If you’re now a PFP student, but you want to find out more, email Dr. Bruno Sales at
