Viviana Esquivel ’22 participated in the UT Southwestern STARS program over the summer. Her project centered around the Pathophysiology of Cardiovascular Diseases.

STARS (Science Teacher Access to Resources at Southwestern) was developed in 1991 to improve the quality of science education in North Central Texas by making UT Southwestern Medical Center’s vast educational resources available to middle and high school science teachers.

Callie LaValle '22 was selected as one of only 200 female students (15-19-years old) around the world for the first-ever MENA (Middle East and North Africa) – USA Empowering Resilient Girls Exchange (MERGE) program. Young women from participating countries will meet virtually to discuss mental health and to develop emotional resilience skills which they can then share with their communities. This opportunity was offered through The World Affairs Council of DFW, one of Ursuline’s local educational partners.

She also spent part of her summer volunteering through Projects Abroad in Ghana. She was a medical volunteer and spent her time there working with Pediatric doctors and surgeons.

Isabella O'Brien '23 participated in a summer academic program at Cambridge University in the United Kingdom via Immerse Education. Her study centered around the field of Psychology where she worked alongside students from Belgium, Italy, Nigeria, Russia, Scotland and Wales. She also toured Oxford University and did a day-trip to London during her session.
