Hi Riobamba Team!

My name is Hailey Amato and I’m so excited to be part of this amazing adventure with you. I live in Sunnyvale and teach 7th grade in East Palo Alto.  I love to watch the Warriors, play water polo and train at my boxing gym.  I enjoy reading and all types of art.

I have traveled to all habitable continents 🙂 and spent one year living and working in Quito, Ecuador. I know how beautiful and diverse Ecuador is and how colorful the culture and people are. I love the strange and unique fruits,  the artisan markets and the gorgeous scenery.  I can’t wait to go back and share in new, exciting experiences as a group in Riobamba.

I hope you are ready for a trip that will change you! See you soon!
