I’m so excited that we’re leaving on our trip to Nicaragua in less than 10 days! My name is Danny Fernandez and I’ll be one of the your Global Glimpse Leaders. I teach 10th grade Literacy and World History at the School for Democracy and Leadership in East Flatbush, Brooklyn. I’ve lived in New York for about 9 years, but I was born and raised in Miami, Florida. I grew up speaking Spanish, and I look forward to practicing my skills on our trip. Before I was a teacher, I worked at Environmental and Human Rights nonprofits. I became a Global Glimpse leader because I’m still very dedicated to making the world a better place through my own actions and through helping others see that they can have a positive impact. I think it’s important that young people are exposed to new experiences and real world problems. The Global Glimpse program is an incredible opportunity for you all and for myself.
I look forward to share all of these new, challenging, and wonderful experiences with you all!
