Originally from New York, Laura has spent the last 6 years of her life dedicated to international exchange – both as an advocate and a participant. With a BA in Spanish from Florida International University (FIU), Laura has taken advantage of opportunities abroad by studying, volunteering, and teaching English in Argentina, Nicaragua, Mexico and Peru. Upon graduation, she worked to help others have transformational experiences abroad as the Program Coordinator at FIU’s Office of Study Abroad. However, after 3 years, the travel bug bit again. As such, Laura is currently living and working in Fortaleza, Brazil as a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant. In her spare time, Laura loves to dance – primarily Latin Ballroom, but really anything with a beat does the trick.
Laura is absolutely thrilled to be continuing her travels aboard the MV Explorer for the Spring 2015 Around The World Voyage!
