With a love for languages and travel, it’s little surprise Simonetta Da Rios dreams of a career in foreign affairs. 

Originally from Mexico, Simonetta came to Canada for high school. Now she is studying Intercultural and International Studies at Douglas College.

Being part of the College’s diverse student population is a good fit for someone so globally minded. “I’ve been having a great time at Douglas College because it’s so multicultural,” she says. “I’m in the right place if I want to work in international relations.”

After completing an associate degree at Douglas, Simonetta wants to transfer to university and earn a bachelor’s degree in international relations. That’s how she’s bringing her dream into reality.
