Kyana has worked with international students for the last 6 years and joined Peralta College’s Office of International Education in 2022. As an Iranian American raised in the Bay area, she was always interested in the diverse cultures and languages that surrounded her. Her first experience with international exchange started at Azusa Pacific University when she studied abroad in the Dominican Republic while earning her BA in Spanish. She went on to teach the language for 8 years, often taking students on international trips. She earned her Master’s degree in International Peace Studies at Trinity College Dublin, Ireland. These experiences solidified her enthusiasm for international exchange as a benefit to the individual, as well as the local and global community! She is always looking for new opportunities to travel and explore. She is excited to join Peralta Colleges to help students who have the same passion. In her free time, she likes to read, cook with her family, and practice yoga.
