Savier Morales

My name is Savier, and I just love Traveling. I have been involved with Friday Night Live, which is a community youth outreach program, which has camps and training to help and support every teen who needs the push to get back up. In Junior year, I spend a month in Peru, traveling to Tarapoto, Lima, and Quito. This trip made me want to experience more, Global Citizen Year made this great opportunity to accomplish a goal of mine, Learn Spanish Fluently.
