Marta Castillo is the marketing coordinator at CSU. She was born in Panama City, Panama, on Sept. 12, 1990. In her last year of high school, she made the biggest decision of her life until now, which was going to college in a different country away from family and friends. She was scared at first, but all her fears were relieved one by one with the help of God and with lot of prayer. She was scared to go to mass in English because of the language. She noticed that the catholic mass was not that difficult to follow because it kind of had the same rhythm in Spanish and she knew where it was going. In her three years with CSU she has seen it grow so much from seven members to almost 100 registered participants. She has noticed that the LU-Newman Center has really brought CSU closer together like a family. She gives thanks to God because He gave her the opportunity to meet wonderful people here at the LU-Newman Center who help her to grow as a person, and more importantly, they help her to grow spiritually.
