Buenas tardes from sunny Cochabamba!

I’m Jessie and I’ll be one of your instructors for your upcoming adventure to Bolivia. I am originally from the Pacific Northwest of the United States.  I first traveled to Bolivia ten years ago, and I have been living in Cochabamba, Bolivia on and off ever since.  For the last five years, I’ve been leading study abroad adventures through Vietnam, Morocco, and Bolivia.  My focus is on climate education and finding just solutions to provide a more equitable and sustainable life for all.

Bolivia is a place of dramatic landscapes and millennia of ancestral wisdom & fierce social resistance.  It is simultaneously one of the countries that is most vulnerable to the climate crisis as well as one of the world’s greatest potential leaders in climate justice.  I can’t wait to accompany you on your journey discovering this truly tremendous country.

We’ll be posting some materials soon to prepare you for your trip, so stay tuned.

See you in a four short weeks!
