It’s almost here! We hope you’re as excited as we are! As Program Coordinators, we truly believe that this 16-day itinerary will have a huge impact on young and creative minds like yours.


Now, let us introduce ourselves:


Hi, my name is Sonia Membreño. I am a 25-year-old Graphic Designer from Managua, Nicaragua, with a passion for the arts, education and cultural exchange. Throughout the years, I’ve been privileged enough to have several opportunities to travel and experience different cultures, as a student, a volunteer, and a tourist. This has allowed me to understand more about the problems we face as a society and the responsibilities we as individuals need to undertake to help make this world a better, more inclusive and just place.

This is my first time working with Global Glimpse and even though my journey to get here was different from the rest of my peers (as I’ve only been here for a month!), I’ve already witnessed the impact this kind of program has in the life of the students who decide to take on the challenge (and the Leaders as well!). Global Glimpse has changed my life in so many ways in such a short period of time so I can’t wait to finally get the chance to meet all of you and start making memories together!



Hi, my name is Larry Gómez. I am from Nicaragua, and I have lived most of my life in a rural community in Matagalpa. There I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering. My first international experience was in 2011 when I lived and studied at the University of Northern Iowa for the summer. I was 18 years old. This experience totally changed the way I see the world and paved the way for other experiences and opportunities that I never dreamed of before that summer. At the time I first heard about GG, I had always wanted to learn more about the organization. I have a strong belief that traveling is one of the best ways to change our own view on life and the world. This is my first time working with GG, and I am sure that together we will make a great team. During my free time, I enjoy hiking, running, reading, meeting new people, and listening to music.





We’re looking forward to meeting you and being by your side during this amazing experience!


Sonia and Larry
