Gabriela Hubner
Editor in Chief

Class of 2021
Majors: International Studies & Spanish

Gabi grew up in Brazil and recently studied in Spain to practice her Spanish. She is passionate about the topic of international development in Latin America and hopes to work in the field after college. She joined the Americas team because she believes there is amazing content being produced on Latin America by college students, and that this content deserves to be shared and broadcasted.

Sabrina Rainsbury
Class of 2021
Major: Spanish
Sabrina is a current junior at Johns Hopkins University studying Spanish and on the pre-med track. Sabrina joined Américas in 2019 after writing a piece for the journal earlier in the year. She has a particular interest in the cultural and political issues facing Latin American countries. She hopes to one day combine these passions with a knowledge of medicine to work with underserved populations internationally.

Melanie Pillaca-Gutiérrez
Class of 2022
Majors: International Studies & Economics

As someone raised in the U.S. by two Peruvian immigrants, Melanie often found myself distanced (not just geographically) from the history and culture of Latin America. Therefore, she strives to engage my education in the past and present movements that have shaped the region through social, political, economic, and global means. Fun fact: She is trilingual and currently learning Mandarin Chinese!

Noelle Curtis
Class of 2022
Major: International Studies & Spanish
Noelle is a current junior at Johns Hopkins University studying International Studies and Spanish. As a new member of the Américas team, she was inspired to join by her love of Latin American languages and culture and is currently studying both Spanish and Portuguese. After college, she hopes to take her coursework in Latin American studies to work in the field of international affairs and/or diplomacy.

Nichole Calvin
Class of 2022
Majors: International Studies & Economics

Nichole joined Américas because she wanted another way to learn about Latin American culture outside of the classroom. As a Spanish major, she think it’s important to go beyond fluency of the language to also understand and appreciate the complexities of the Spanish-speaking world. She is particularly interested in the political issues and overall development within Latin American countries.
