I now am able to apply my degree in Environmental Economics in my job to help companies switch to more green practices. I believe it is important to do work that is bigger than you, which is why I loved my experience in Buenos Aires (specifically La Boca). For fun, I like to hang with friends, play guitar, fish, and basically any activity outside. My experience with Voluntario Global left me with a desire to continue to find ways to help and to travel. I hope to get back to Buenos Aires and see all the good that Voluntario Global continues to do!
