In May 2018 Erin graduated from Miami University of Ohio with a BA in International Studies concentrating on Latin America. She has always loved to travel and made her first trip out of the country when she was 13 years old with her family to Honduras. Since then, she has been to many different countries and quickly fell in love with learning about new cultures and languages. Once she discovered BECA, she became captivated by its mission and decided that volunteering with such a wonderful organization is exactly what she needed to do. That being said, she is incredibly excited to start this new journey teaching at Santa Monica Bilingual School and creating meaningful relationships with her students and the other volunteers through cultural exchange. In her spare time, Erin loves to listen to music and dance as well as practice yoga when she can.
