CAS Student Featured in New UAB Promos

Angelica Jaimes, a Sophomore majoring in Spanish and international studies, is one of several UAB students and faculty members featured in the new The Campaign for UAB: Give Something, Change Everything commercials. Once the cameras finished rolling, UAB Magazine talked with several participants in the new commercials to learn the stories behind their star turns. (Read how music student Kevin Peek wrote the music for these commercials in this related story.)

Angelica Jaimes. The welcoming atmosphere and diverse student body at UAB attracted Angelica Jaimes, a native of Mexico City who went to high school in Homewood. Her classes, particularly those related to her international studies major, have opened her eyes to the social and economic challenges faced by people around the world, she says. “It is evident that many global problems are too big to solve immediately, but with commitment they can slowly be resolved,” Jaimes says.

Jaimes isn’t yet sure where her career path will lead, but she does know where she would like to make a difference in the world. “I want to work with a nonprofit organization that helps educate underprivileged children across Latin America, in particular girls,” she says.
