Dear Glimpsers, families and friends,

This amazing journey is about to begin and we want you to meet us: your Program Coordinators, that will accompany you this summer. We have been planning your dynamic 14-day itinerary for your visit to Ecuador for the last few months.

¡Gran día y saludos cordiales! It’s a big pleasure to introduce myself, my name is Mateo Andrés and I’m originally from Mykytá (today known as Bogotá, Colombia). I’m an anthropologist by vocation, also I’m an independent musician I like to play and sing traditional music from Abya Yala (Latin America). I’m sure that art can be used as a tool for social change. I’m in love with life, my conviction is to do things with love and will. I like to travel, ride my bike and cook. Also, I’m a father of a beautiful baby called Aba and I deeply love my wife Francia Elena. For me, it’s a dream come true to be part of GG and receive you all here in Ecuador. With an elevated heart, I’ll be waiting for you. Buen camino y buen tiempo ¡Nos vemos pronto!

Hi! I’m Angelita and I’m from Riobamba, I’ve lived here for a long time, so I’m very excited to show you amazing places and amazing things from here. I have a degree in Tourism and also I have a Socio-environmental mastery degree. I really enjoy listening to music and sharing about culture and costumes. About me, I want you to know that I’m a pet lover, so I live with 3 dogs and a cat. I love sewing and I make blouses and hoods, too. I worked with summer groups similar to Global Glimpse delegations some years ago and I really, really enjoyed it! So, I’m waiting to share a nice time with you. I would like to know about your expectations and what you know about Ecuador. I’m sure we will enjoy this trip together. See you soon!

Our best regards:
Angelita & Mateo
Big Love!
