Belinda B. Castiblanco

My name is Belinda B. Castiblanco. I was born in San Salvador, the capital of El Salvador in Central America in 1978.  My mother brought me to the United States when I turned 17 years old. By the time I turned 20 years old I got married and had my first son.  I spent many years working in different factories and, at the same time, trying to find the time and means to learn English and continue my university studies. I am an Emergency Medical Technician and a CPR instructor.  At the moment, I am enrolled in the Spanish Literature and The Foreign Languages Teacher Education programs with a minor in Latin American and Caribbean Studies at the Stony Brook University of New York.

Currently, I live in Long Island, New York with my husband, Sidney, and my sons Diego and Jeremy. I am a member of three honor societies and the Dean’s List. Recently, I won the Best Undergraduate Essay Award in the Department of Hispanic Languages and Literature in my university, however, becoming a recipient of the Dr. Alicia Savage Scholarship Award is one of the greatest honors I have received during my academic career.

I am very grateful to the Alpha Sigma Lambda Honor Society. My goals are to become a Spanish Literature teacher, share my culture with my future students, and never stop learning.
