Meet our Education Specialist, Diana Gonzalez! 

My name is Diana Gonzalez and this is my 3rd year working with Learning Enterprises. I first volunteered in 2019 in Panama and came back as an Ant-PD in 2021 to continue serving a country that has become very close to my heart. I am finishing my degree in Sociology and Education at UCSC and hope to be able to use my education and experience to provide support to our future volunteers abroad!
