Yaneli, Spanish Peer Tutor 
 
 
Meet Yaneli, one of our Spanish peer tutors!

Hello! This is my third year at UIC: my major is Integrated Health Studies and I’m also minoring in Spanish. I work about 25 hours a week at my family’s business and hope to become a Physician’s Assistant. I grew up speaking and learning English and Spanish both at home and at school. I do however feel more confident in English, and understand that another language such as Spanish can be difficult at times. I often ask my family members or friends for help, it’s definitely a learning process! But it allows me to grow and learn, as I’d hope to do with others. I’ve always enjoyed knowing two languages, because it allows me to talk and connect with more people, help others, expand my mind and appreciate life more. Helping my other students understand and appreciate the Spanish language is a goal of mine because knowing languages gives opportunity, knowledge, and even consciousness.

3-11-2021: Make Vegan Milchreis with Alex!

My favorite German dessert is Milchreis, which directly translates to “milk rice.” I would compare it to a rice pudding, however, it is much better than rice pudding. So I was really disappointed when I developed a dairy allergy a couple years ago and could not enjoy Milchreis anymore. That put me on a quest to create a vegan recipe for Milchreis! This recipe was originally my German grandfather’s recipe for Milchreis, but I have changed it to suit my needs.
