After graduating from Bridgewater College in 2021, I decided to take a year and some to travel. I was able to travel to over 22 different countries!!!!! During one of my visits to my home country, El Salvador, I volunteered in a local elementary school where I quickly fell in love with teaching. I decided to pursue a career in education. 

I am currently serving my first year at Justice High School in Falls Church Virginia as an ESOL teacher! I am also coaching Girls soccer at the high school and have become an advocate for the local youth in the area. In addition, I have also returned to school and am currently in a graduate program at George Mason University. I am extremely grateful for the support I received from RSF back in high school. I have definitely come a long way since my freshman year, however the memories and the accomplishments I have made thus far, I will treasure forever!!!!”
