Hello to everyone!
My name is Chelsea, and I’ll be one of your instructors on the Dominican Republic course this summer. I lived in the Dominican Republic for a year and a half, working at an education nonprofit where I met my very good friend and co-instructor, Julio! I learned so much from my time in the Dominican Republic, and I am eager to return to the island and travel with you all through this country that is so dear to my heart.
A little more about me…I am from Santa Cruz, and I have worked with Dragons as a Central American semester instructor and as a summer instructor in Guatemala and Nicaragua. Currently, I am studying public policy at UC Berkeley, with a focus on immigration and human rights. I played soccer in college and love to write, ride my bike (but not up the hills in Berkeley), and surf in very gentle waters.
I hope that you all enjoy the end of your school year, and I am so looking forward to meeting you soon!
Un abrazo grande,
