Currently studying Social Work at Azusa Pacific University outside of Los Angeles, Annie has always had a passion to learn about other cultures and live outside of the United States. Her dream came true with the opportunity to spend 6 weeks of her summer in Quito, Ecuador through a spiritual formation program. Since her first move to Quito, she has had the opportunity to come back two different times with a semester abroad program called Living & Learning International. Her semester abroad consisted of intense Spanish classes, adventures all around the country including the Galapagos, and a month with a homestay family. Currently, she is working as a summer Resident Coordinator by assisting student interns in daily living, planning weekly chapels, and co-leading weekend activities.
