Graduated from Boston College with a bachelor’s degree in Biochemistry and a minor in German

Before coming to Amigos I was studying Biochemistry and German at Boston College. I volunteered a lot with various service organizations in the Boston area throughout my 4 years there.

Motivation for coming to Amigos

Before graduating this past May. I decided to pursue postgraduate international service because I was looking for an experience that would push me to grow in new ways. I always admired the Jesuit ideals of my university and wanted an opportunity to actually live them out. ADJ was a great fit because I knew I wanted to work with kids, learn Spanish, and expand my faith life.

Duties

Here I have a few different jobs between the school and Hogar. At the school I teach preschool, co-teach Nivel 2 of Educatodos, and run the computer lab. Plus I am a resource teacher which means I tutor certain kids when they need special help in and outside of class. In the Hogar, I am the support person to the medical coordinator so that means I take on various medical projects from time to time.
