College/Major:
University of Colorado at Boulder, International Spanish for the Professions & Minor in Business

Hobbies/Interests:
I love anything outdoors! I snowboard in the winter and hike in the summers. I love spending time with my friends, cooking, and reading!

Prior Experience:
I have taught Spanish to kindergarteners and first graders as an after-school activity at local schools. This experience has inspired me to continue teaching to those who want to learn a foreign language! I traveled to Spain for Study Abroad during college. I immediately caught the travel bug and want to travel as much as possible.

Why I’m Going to Colombia:

I want to learn about Colombian culture and immerse myself in a culture that is different from my own. I want to continue learning Spanish while also using my English skills to teach others. Colombia is very interesting to me with their history and progression to a thriving country.
