Student Office Assistants

Elizabeth “Emi” Iribarren 
My name is Emi Iribarren (she/her). I am a junior Sociology and Political Science double-major from San Diego, CA. I joined the Study Abroad Student Assistant Team this fall semester, 2021. A fun fact about myself is that I was adopted from Wuhan, China. I have also traveled to several different countries during family trips including Italy, France, Britain, Mexico, and more.

Where do you want to study abroad?
I would love to study abroad in New Zealand because I am interested in learning more about their political structures and system. The country is also very beautiful, so it would be amazing to be able to study abroad and experience New Zealand life and nature in real life.

 

Hayden Johnson 
I am from Madison, Wisconsin, and I study Political Science here at LMU. The main reason I joined the study abroad team, and the reason of my overall interest in study abroad, is because I love language study and international relations, specifically French.

Where do you want to study abroad?
I am most interested in the LMU Summer in Paris program because it fits best with my scheduling as well as giving me that immersive experience living in France.

 

Jaden Schutt 
Hi! My name is Jaden! I am an 18-year-old girl studying Business Management and Leadership (and might add a minor or another major soon). I am from Los Angeles and I just joined the Study Abroad team a few weeks ago! A few fun facts about it is that I love to sleep, I love watching Netflix (if you see me, suggestions are cool:), my favorite food is tacos, and I have a twin brother that goes to Grand Canyon University.

Where do you want to study abroad?
I want to go to many places, but the place I want to go the most is Spain. I have always wanted to go there and learn more about their culture and my partial Spanish heritage. I also want to go to Croatia because I have never really heard much about it and I want to be one of those people who goes somewhere out of the ordinary and gets to say "Oh I have been there! It is real and let me tell you about it!"

 

Nathalie Yacoub 
My name is Nathalie Yacoub, I am a Junior majoring in International Relations. I was born in Cairo, Egypt and my favorite food would have to be Egyptian stuffed grape leaves as they are delicious! I’ve had so much interest about the world and the many cultures it entails; because of that, I decided to join the Study Abroad Office team during fall 2021. I wanted to become a member of a group of informative student assistants who can help the LMU student body become more familiar with the diverse Study Abroad programs our college holds. One fun fact about me is that I’m trilingual! This has pushed me to explore many cultures and fall in love with the similarities between where I come from and everywhere else.

Where do you want to study abroad?
I would love to study abroad in Aix-en-Provence, France as I am interested in the French culture and would like an opportunity where I can strengthen my language skills. Southern France is very beautiful and an inspirational place to be. Therefore, spending sometime there studying would be a transformative experience.
