Amigos de las Americas had a tremendous impact on my life. I worked with the nonprofit as a Volunteer in Azuay, Ecuador (1990), in Lempira, Honduras as a Field Supervisor (1993), as an Assistant Project Director in El Oro, Ecuador (1996), and as a Project Director in Villarrica, Paraguay (1998).
In 2017 our family took a trip to Italy. We visited Rome, Capri, Florence, and Venice. We met up with my cousin Shanna and her family in Rome (see photo).
