My name is Adelia and I am a South Florida native.  As an enthusiast for Latin America, I majored in Spanish as an undergraduate at the University of Florida and have spent significant time in Latin America traveling, teaching English, and interning. Before moving to New Orleans to pursue my post graduate degree in International Development, I worked as a middle school Spanish teacher.  Through this experience, my passion for children and education became apparent to me.

John D Hays

Alumnus, Joint J.D./M.S., ARPC

Hello, my name is John Hays and I am a joint JD/MS (IDEV) 2014 alumnus. I grew up in the Memphis area and studied at Vanderbilt University where I majored in Economics and Spanish. My post-college career took an unusual turn when I made the decision to temporarily move to Argentina and play online poker professionally. Unlike many new graduates with an Economics degree, I was able to directly apply, on a daily basis, Game Theory, Statistics, and Behavioral Economics in my new trade.  What was initially a hobby in college proved to cover my expenses in a post-crisis Argentina.
