A previous participant of our Guatemala Youth Leadership program, Billy has been working in our Seattle office since March of this year assisting with our U.S. youth programs and development efforts. Billy decided to take a year off from his university studies in Guatemala to come to Seattle and work at the Global Visionaries office.
“I had to take a year leave from university to accept the position and am disappointed that I won’t be graduating with my friends, but this is a once in a lifetime opportunity that I wasn’t going to pass up,” Billy said.
While in the U.S., Billy hopes to gain a stronger understanding of U.S. culture while improving his English-speaking skills. Billy also hopes to hit the ski slopes while in Seattle, given that Billy had never even seen snow until he came to the U.S.
