We can’t believe the time is almost here. We would like to express how excited we are to meet all of you this summer. We, your Program Coordinators, have spent the last month in Panama planning a dynamic 14-day itinerary. We have made so many amazing connections with the people and organizations here and we are ready to show you what “ Las Tablas” is all about!

So, I am sure you are wondering: who are we?

My name is Zarai Guañuna, I was born and raised in Quito, Ecuador. Over the last five years, I lived in South Korea, where I completed my bachelor’s degree in International Relations with a minor in Business Administration. Being an international student on the other side of the Atlantic allowed me to see the real world through a new lens, expanded my horizons, and made me find my real identity as a global citizen. It’s amazing how life changes. I used to be an active volunteer in several international NGOs and now I will be leading the leadership program at Global Glimpse. I’m eager to work in this organization and leave a positive legacy in the student’s life. Outside of work, I play tennis and enjoy running, hiking, and camping.

Paco Romero here! I am a graphic designer who really enjoys photography, 3D art, and many other expressions of art (music, illustration). For more than 7 years I have been teaching English in private institutions and universities in the city of Riobamba. Aside from that, I worked with KOICA, a Korean agency as an interpreter.

I worked with Global Glimpse in 2018, 2019, 2022 and 2023. In 2020 I left for Malta to study English and finally achieved one of my most yearned dreams, to live in Europe. Sadly because of the pandemic, I could not stay for the time I wanted. In 2021, I started a master’s degree in teaching English as a foreign language and now, I find myself excited to be back with Global Glimpse in Panama doing a job that I really enjoy! I can’t wait to see you here in Panama!

So Glimpsers, now that you know who we are, it’s only fair that we get to meet you. LET THE COUNTDOWN BEGIN!. We hope this experience will challenge you, excite you, and inspire you to make changes in your community and the world. See you in Las tablas!

Your PCs,

Zarai and Paco
