AmeriCorps Program Consultant
What kind of volunteering do you do? I did a year of service in Guatemala working in a school for child laborers. Currently I volunteer with refugee families, and I train people to reach out to their legislators and build their civic muscle. I love community organizing!
What’s your favorite sports team? Is musical theater a sport?
What’s the coolest thing you’ve ever done? True answer: having a baby. Cool answer: I was pulled out of the audience during a performance in London’s West End to play Ophelia in a comedic version of Hamlet. I also performed on stage in NYC, and participated in a bilingual production in Guatemala on women’s empowerment.
What are you thankful for? My supportive family, my daughter Celeste Quetzali, my health, and the opportunities I have had to travel, meet people, and continue to learn about the world.
What’s the best advice you’ve ever received? When you have faith in people, it makes them stronger.
