Food insecurity affects many college students and this number is even bigger when it comes to international students. In this blog, we explore this growing issue and present the many resources to ensure you and others like yourself don’t have to go without food.

Team Profile: Maria Caballero - Marketing Coordinator

I’m originally from Mexico and have lived in Ireland for one year. Studying abroad was one of the most life-changing experiences in my life. This was the main reason why I decided to join the ISI team, to help international students and travelers to achieve their goals abroad.

I love learning about other cultures even through a book or from a friend from another country. I studied International Relations not only to understand how the world works but also to learn from others.
