Meet Adriana, our 2015 Education Manager

Hola, my name is Adriana.

I was born in New York but Sevilliana at heart. I graduated from Arizona State University in 2009 with a BA in Psychology and a minor in family human development. I got my first taste of wanderlust when I studied abroad in 2008 and after I graduated I moved back to Spain. From 2009 to 2010 I taught English in a rural town outside of Cordoba. I then moved to Sevilla in 2012 to fill my Spanish void, perfect my Spanish and pursue my dream of becoming an English teacher. After 3 consecutive years in Sevilla fate had shifted plans for me and I found myself back in New York. I spent a year working for ‘The Boys’ Club of New York’ as an Education Coordinator. Soon after I found myself missing the sunshine, speaking Spanish and most importantly teaching.

Through a series of various serendipitous events I came across La Choza Chula and instantly felt drawn to be a part. I believe that everything happens for a reason and I believe that life has brought me here to help the people of El Paredón.
