Name: Chelita Pate

BYU employee since: January 19, 1989

My job at BYU is… Coordinator of International Study Programs, which means I am lucky enough to work with Faculty, Department Chairs and Associate Deans to help them develop their study abroad programs

Different cultures and languages ...sparked my interest in my field

I’m currently reading...  Leadership and Self Deception

My advice to graduating seniors is… make your education count not only for making money but for making a difference in other people’s lives

The best-kept BYU secret is… going on Study Abroad  because you learn so many things that are impossible to learn sitting in a classroom

The title of my autobiography would be… She Lived The Dream

On Saturday mornings you’ll find me... singing and dancing to Latin music while I do weekly chores

One item on my bucket list is… to go to Antarctica    

My favorite quote is… “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts.” –Mark Twain
