She was the Vice President of the Federal Bar Association student section and was active in the life of the university.

This program was held at NYU's Madrid, Spain campus. Courses were taught entirely in Spanish and Isabel wrote a thesis entitled "El Quijote como un vehículo de una identidad cubana." 

Isabel completed an interdisciplinary degree consisting in Biology, Spanish, and Psychology courses. Isabel is fascinated by the complexity of the human experience, so not knowing what to do professionally at that point in her life, she took courses that explore our fabric: anatomy & physiology, nutrition, personality theory, and language acquisition.

Her experiences that are relevant to the legal field include interning for the Honorable Migna Sanchez-Llorens in Miami, FL, interning in the Office of Chief Counsel at the John F.
