Christina Gennaoui, 2017-2018 volunteer

Graduated from Rowan University with a major in physics, minors in math and business administration


After college, I was living in upstate NY and working as a quality engineer for the Dept. of the Army. Last year, I was a volunteer with BECA and served as the Prepa (kindergarten) teacher in the bilingual school at Amigos.

Motivation for coming to Amigos:

When I think back to my first visit to Amigos, on a week-long mission trip, I can't really pinpoint my exact motivation for coming. But I can easily say it's the joy I feel being around the kids, the passion I feel for the work that I do here, and the friends I've made in the Amigos community that keep me wanting to come back!


This year I will be serving as the Medical Lead, helping to keep the kids of Amigos de Jesús healthy and happy! I'll administer first aid, accompany the kids on medical appointments, maintain our on-site clinic... anything medical related, I'll have a hand in it.
