Isabel is from San Jose, CA and received B.A. degrees in Math and Spanish (with minors in Urban Education, Computer Science, and Latin Americans Studies) from Santa Clara University.

Why Isabel chose RdC
I have been inspired by participating in and leading immersion experiences to Mexico, the Dominican Republic, and East Los Angeles, where I have gotten small glimpses of what it is like to learn about communities by talking to its members and forming relationships with them. I hope to challenge myself and grow as an individual, as well as form meaningful relationships with the community and my fellow volunteers. I hope to learn more about myself as well as the Ecuadorian community surrounding me and their unique struggles, challenges, and triumphs.
