During my semester abroad in the Spring of 2007 my group was immersed in the different cultures throughout Panama. Our one night stay in the Comarca Ngäbe-Buglé was definitely one of the most impressionable as the impoverishment of the community was constantly apparent. The lack of income generating activities and inability of families to support themselves through agriculture was evident. I joined Few for Change because I believe that providing access to education will give promising students in the Comarca access to new opportunities to pursue a career and support their families. After graduating from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in May 2008 with a degree in Environmental Sciences I returned to Panama in January of 2009 for 14 months to volunteer for a conservation organization, CREA, promoting sustainable agriculture techniques with rural farmers, teaching English, and leading trips of American high school students. I am currently in graduate school completing a dual degree in environmental policy and teaching.
