Alejandro Velasquez Blas CC’21

An Argentinian native with roots in Peru, Alejandros interest in French arises from his admiration for the multicultural blend within France, which parallels his own Latino identity. As a planned political science and sustainable development double major, he seeks to gain insight into what it means to be “French” in the current political climate that a globalized France finds itself in and to obtain crucial information about public opinion on the innovative renewable energy practices France employs. Alejandro hopes to have achieved a natural fluency in French in order to one day, through environmental policy, help build a meaningful lasting agreement between America and France for a greener, cleaner and more sustainable world.
