Pierina is a former teacher in Dominican Republic, the country where she was born and raised. She graduated from UNIBE last summer and received an Early Childhood Education degree. One year after she entered college she started working in a Reggio-inspired school. There she has learned to offer children meaningful experiences through play, respecting their nature and stage of development. She sees both education and children as powerful paths to change society. She is passionate about helping others, especially those who haven’t had the best opportunities in life. In her free time she likes to share with her friends and family, bake, and look up decor ideas. She’s eager about this new chapter in her personal and professional life and is looking forward to take the most out of it.
