Pablo Navarro Mon
Pablo has led student camps for more than six years. He studied engineering, although he is passionate about teaching, which he does when he is not leading camps. In the past Pablo lived in Mexico City carrying out an empowerment project with orphaned girls, in Istanbul studying a renewable energy course, and in Ghana carrying out an electrification project using solar panels for a rural school. He is excited to be able to participate this year with GW and share his experience, to provide another way of understanding the communities with which we will work, their culture and their relationships. He has a great sense of humor, and the ability to always make people smile.

Try to escape the sites advertised in travel guides. If you want to experience a culture, choose a small town and stay for several days just feeling the routine.
