How Many Global Works trips have you traveled on? 

More than I can count!

Where have you traveled with Global Works? 

Costa Rica, Panama, Spain

What is the favorite place you have visited on a GW program?

It’s hard to name just one favorite place! For homestay, I’d say the FES (Fundación Escuela de Solidaridad) in Granada, Spain because of the incredibly warm community and shared mission. And I can’t leave out Poco Sol in Costa Rica. I love the views and feel of the cloud forest! And how do you beat Kuna Yala in Panama!?

What can you not live with out on a trip?

A headlamp! And coffee. Mucho café.11813353_1000133023645_3173229217238711858_n

What is your favorite GW memory?

Sitting in a circle on Nubesidub (a small island in the Kuna Yala community of Panama) with the moonlight and water surrounding us. The students led a great discussion and it was awesome to see them come together as group.

What do you do when you are not traveling with Global Works?

I am a Spanish teacher at Denver East High School. Go Angels!

What is your secret talent?

Handstands are my favorite!

Where do you want to travel to next?

New Zealand and Colombia
