Nathaly Romero

Nathaly Romero is passionate about...(this is part of the reason why she's doing Global Citizen Year). She is involved in BUILD, and the Global Glimpse Alumni Ambassador Program. Her goals for the year are to learn about who she is, who she would like to be, and what she would like to do in life. Nathaly's goal is to learn as much as she can about India and all of its rich culture. Nathaly has too many "favorite quotes" but she's recently added one to her collection by Jim Carrey in which he says, "You can fail at what you don't want, so you might as well take a chance at doing what you love."
