Alicia Jaqua

Alicia Jaqua is an international multi-linguist who has lived in Tokyo, Seattle, Peru, and now – Claremont. She has grown up in a very diverse environment, learning English, Spanish, and Japanese from her family and the people around her. Now, at Webb, she is studying French for the very first time. She converses in Japanese with her little sister, English with her friends at Webb, and Spanish with her dad’s side of the family. When asked about her aspirations for the future, she said, “I’m really grateful that I was able to learn multiple languages at such a young age. In the future, I know this knowledge will allow me to get more opportunities. When I grow up, I really want to live around the world as an astronomer. In order to do this, I need to be able to communicate with all types of people.”
