I’m Aarti, a Project Intern. I just completed my freshman year at Pitt and am pursuing an undergraduate path in pre medicine with a global studies concentration on global health in Latin America and a Spanish minor. Besides being “that” pred med, I also enjoy trying new food (not spicy), dancing, and talking very quickly. I am super excited for this adventure!
Jenny Park is continuing into her third year at the University of Pittsburgh as a Neuroscience major with a Global Studies certificate. When she is not helping with long-term, sustainable solutions to global poverty with Nourish, she enjoys eating ethnic foods, listening to anything sung by Shakira, and playing the ukulele. She also still has yet to finish packing for her flight in T-minus 8 hours and is procrastinating by writing this bio in third person.
My name is Gianna Callisto and I just completed my freshman year at Pitt. I am majoring in Political Science and Global Studies and am heading to Panajachel in the hopes of improving my Spanish skills on my way towards a minor. While in Guatemala I hope to take in the culture of those around me, take a look into the inner-workings of a non-profit organization, and take advantage of being involved in such a strong and sustainable project.
