¡Hello all and greetings from León, Nicaragua!  

We hope everyone is doing well. We are Carrie and Camila, your Leon 1 Program Coordinators, writing you from Nicaragua! We’re both looking forward to welcoming you to one of the oldest and most beautiful cities in the country — one that will soon be your new home for two weeks: the city of León!

From the Pacific coast to the top of volcanoes (literally), together we’ll explore this city and its surrounding areas while getting to know one another, the communities of the León, and this great big world around us. We have been working hard to create an interesting and exciting program that will facilitate learning, teamwork, as well as personal and professional growth for each of you in a new and intriguing intercultural context.

Together we’ll learn and we’ll grow. We’ll inspire and we’ll be inspired. You were selected to be a part of this unique experience because you demonstrate leadership, integrity, as well as a strong will to embrace new experiences and challenges. We know how hard you’ve worked to get to this point, and we appreciate all that you’ve already done to be a part of this. We have no doubt that this will be a profound experience for all of us, and we are so happy to have you here for the journey.

Safe and happy travels to all! See you soon in León!

Un abrazo,

Camila and Carrie
