Regla Jorge Hernandez
My name is Regla Jorge Hernandez, I was born in Guantanamo, Cuba, and was raised in Miami. I am a rising senior at the University of Florida in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences as an Anthropology Major. I transferred to the University last year from the Miami Dade Honors College where I earned an award for Excellence in Anthropology. Within anthropology, my goal is to focus on culture and how it shapes our behaviors. I grew up in a melting pot of primarily Latin American culture and I would like to branch out and conduct research in the Polynesian islands.
