We have only TWO more days left before heading out to Jinotega, Nicaragua! I hope you all have started packing, because the days are getting closer! I am excited to share this amazing experience with you all. My name is Nelly Hernandez and I will be one of your GG leaders along with Diana Lawrence. I recently graduated from UC-Santa Cruz and I worked for the Santa Cruz County of Education for the past three years as a tutor/mentor for students in transition. I am a Summer Search alumni and I went to a similar trip when I was in high school. Before my Summer Search trip, I had never traveled to another state or country (except Mexico). I met some of my best friends and people that became family to me. I know it can be quite scary to leave home, but know that we will be here for you every step of the way. If you have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to contact me my email is [email protected] ☺
I am so excited to meet all of you!
