Andy L. Barrientos-Gómez is a PhD Candidate in the Department of Romance Studies where he studies Latin American literature, film, and television. His area of study allows him to travel to beautiful places in Mexico and Brazil. This will be Andy’s fourth year as a Graduate Resident Fellow at Alice Cook House where he thrives in building a strong sense of community and helping residents feel right at home. His favorite types of programming events include those where residents can use their creativity to build and make things from scratch.
In his free time, Andy enjoys activities that involve using the kitchen, from cooking Mexican food, brewing Kombucha to making cocktails. He also enjoys listening to records, going on road trips, watching soccer (Chelsea FC/Real Madrid), going to the cinema, and karaoke with friends.
