  • 11. Para que sepas… I decided to put together this power point of pictures from my year abroad because my experiences both in Spain and in Europe can tell you a lot about the person I am! I have a very adventurous and “go- getter” spirit and I love new experiences. I have a very outgoing and spunky personality and enjoy meeting new people. I’m positive, optimistic, and love to build other people up. In terms of a connection to camp, we need to nurture an environment that is FUN and where kids can get their summer energy out! My experiences abroad were my type of FUN and I always look forward to bringing those memories to other people.  Muchas gracias and I look forward to talking to you soon!
