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 at Amigos my main job is the Medical Coordinator. That means I take kids to the doctor, pass out medicine, maintain our clinic, stock and organize our medicines, manage the annual brigade, etc. In addition, I also spent a few days a week teaching preschool to thirteen adorable kiddos at our school.
