(Me in Vancouver, Canada)
Hola, Glimpsers! This post is coming to you from 1 of your 2 GG Leaders that will be with the Matagalpa 1 Delegation! My name is Matthew Ledesma, and I am excited to be able to lead my third group of Global Glimpse students. I was born in Manila, Philippines and grew up in Turlock, CA. I completed my undergraduate college education at UC San Diego, which was followed by completing my masters degree in counseling at San Francisco State University. I am currently a counselor at South San Francisco High School, where I have been for the past 6 years. I have previously lead Global Glimpse groups to Esteli, Nicaragua, and San Juan de Maguana, Dominican Republic. I love to travel, run, and read. I also consider myself a big hip-hop aficianado/nerd.
On a separate note, please check your emails. Noel Corea (my co-GG Leader) and I have been sending messages and making phone calls to the students.
I look forward to seeing all of the students at SFO in just a few days.
