Hello everyone, I am Nate Edwards and I have grown up in the beautiful state of Colorado. I am very excited to be a part of Global Citizen Year, and look forward to the upcoming challenges and adventures that the next year will have to offer. I have had a strong desire to learn Spanish for the past few years and Global Citizen Year gives me the opportunity to learn the language, and to grow as a person. I enjoy the outdoors and have played a variety of sports throughout high school. I am anxious and nervous for the day we depart for Ecuador, but I know it will be a great life experience.
