Global USA Employee Spotlight: Meet Jan Dominique Santos!

Jan Santos

"It's not impossible, but I'm possible!"

Jan was born and raised in the Philippines until the age of 11 when she moved to the United States. She lived in Michigan for 3 years before moving to Alabama in 2005. She graduated from right here at the University of South Alabama in 2016, majoring in Foreign Languages and Literatures with a concentration in French. Jan is proficient in English, Tagalog, French, Italian and some Sign Language.

Studying in Dijon, France was the highlight of her college career.  "I never thought my dream of going to France would become a reality. But because of the Office of International Education, I made it from Moulton Tower to the Eiffel Tower! Studying abroad teaches you things that you will never learn within the four walls of a classroom. It will give you answers you will not find in the pages of a textbook."

Upon her return, Jan interned as an International Education Ambassador for USA's Office of International Education with Study Abroad and started her professional career as an Education Abroad Advisor last November.  Jan loves learning about different cultures and languages.  "I'm truly excited to present this invaluable opportunity to students and further internationalize our institution."
