I moved to New York when I was 18 which fuelled my passion for exploring new places. I have visited India, Mexico, in addition to several cities around the USA. I have been working in the fashion industry for the last five years; I love taking someone’s idea or art and working to turn it into a reality. After paying my dues running samples to editors and fetching coffee I found a job in the industry where I feel I offer creative input to the team.
I have learned all about Spanish geography, politics, and culture from the wonderful students. I’m inspired by their motivation to learn English and their generosity of spirit. The programme fosters an environment that makes all the students and volunteers feel at ease. I would love to return to the programme and visit the participants I met this time!
