Jambo! Ola! Hi there! Natalie, what isn't she passionate about? She is an interest and fascination with almost anything. Ranging from art, history, literature, linguistics, politics, culture, civil, education rights, etc. She is particularly involved with the exposure of cultures, they study of languages, and the idea of civil education, rights, and equity.

I choose to take advantage of all this program has to offer; from meeting new people, to learning a new language, and doing something to have a positive outcome. One of my favorite quotes: "Be the change you with to see in the world" Mahatma Gandhi
