Meet Your 2011 Team Nicaragua Delegates: Rosemary Garcia
Hola. I'm Rosemary Garcia. My nationality is Mexican and I wanted to become part of Team Nicaragua because I have seen similar issues in Mexico. That being said, I feel strongly about learning more in Nicaragua because we need to educate ourselves first in order to make a difference. Furthermore, I am a psychology major with a business minor. I am a Junior here at Montclair State University. I am interested in Team Nicaragua because it truly is team with a same common goal. Team Nica will go on a journey and through blogging and lectures will attempt to bring back that journey to the United States. I feel like this will be an experience of a lifetime! We will actually be living among Nicaraguens and hopefully bring back much information including their culture.
