My name is Emily Holda, and I’ll be one of your Global Glimpse Leaders on the GG Trip from Chicago to Jarabacoa on June 20th.

This is my first trip with GG and I am very excited to be traveling with you! Some of my favorite travel spots are Israel, Jordan, Turkey, Germany, and Puerto Rico! I love the mission of GG and I am thrilled to be on this journey with you.

Currently, I am a Resident Counselor at the Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy in Aurora, Illinois. In my free time, I study archaeology, spend time at local coffee shops, and hang out with my dog, Lola. I try to travel somewhere new once a year, which is why I am very excited to travel to the Dominican Republic!

I look forward to meeting you all at O’Hare – it will be a great adventure!
