After graduating from Gettysburg, Flores Hidalgo wanted to pursue a Master’s degree at a prestigious Mexican school, and was accepted into the International Studies Masters program at the, Escuela de Gobierno y Política Pública (School of Government and Public Policy) in the Instituto Tecnológico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey. Using networking skills she learned at Gettysburg and contacts she made in graduate school, Flores Hidalgo then pursued an internship with IOM, which led to her current job helping victims of human trafficking.

“The liberal arts focus [at Gettysburg] was amazing because it has helped me analyze and comprehend the types of issues that affect everyone. This has been essential to my work because it has enabled me to work collaboratively with State institutions and understand every aspect of the issues in question,” Flores Hidalgo said.
