Hello! My name is Gilda. I am married with three children, two of whom are grown up and have since moved away from El Sur. I like English very much and understand best when people speak slowly. My childhood in El Sur was beautiful, with my parents and three brothers. My favorite hobbies are to read, write and knit. I have been an active member of EcoSur for fifteen years, and as a group we have been receiving Globe Aware volunteers for the past six of those years. I am looking forward to being the Globe Aware coordinator in El Sur so I can share still more time with volunteers. ¡Pura Vida!
