see all of the wonders of the world
I am originally from Los Angeles, California, but am currently living in Krakow, Poland and teaching at the international school. I have also lived in Myanmar and a small village in Macedonia. I was a volunteer for the US Peace Corps and worked teaching English in my village school. I have done a lot of different projects in Macedonia including creating a music room and establishing an annual math and science fair at my school. I love traveling and have been almost everywhere in western Europe.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I feel like my entire volunteer service in Macedonia has been an amazing achievement. I have done several projects such as establishing a science fair at by school by writing a grant for over $2,000 worth of science equipment. I have also created a music room at my school through grant funding. I have gotten book donations for my school's library and I teach english to both children and adults. In my free time I work on the national spelling bee and essay contest projects and I have been a summer camp counselor for the past six years.
