Hola, my name is Federico. I was born in the north of Argentina in small town named San Miguel de Tucuman. I grew up in Tucson, Arizona where I received my B.S. in Mathematics; I am currently pursuing a Master's Degree in Education through the Language, Reading, and Culture department at the University of Arizona. I've traveled through Europe, South America and in the Pacific. I spent the past year volunteer teaching in the Republic of the Marshall Islands. I lived in Aerok, Ailinglaplap on a 6-mile long island with no running water, telephone or supermarket. Along with teaching English through science, history and math lessons I developed a community-wide gardening project to address the lack of fruits and vegetables in the Marshallese diet. This experience gave me a new perspective on necessities. I experienced the joys and struggles of living without a hectic schedule, but with very limited resources. My other interests include Ultimate Frisbee, swimming, rock-climbing, cycling, hiking, gardening, playing various musical instruments, and creating all forms of art. I am passionate about the rights and preservation of indigenous peoples language, culture, and land, and am an activist for educational rights globally. Sustainable Agricultural development, free trade and global conflict resolution are also of significant interest to me. But most of all I enjoy finding peace and purpose in each moment, especially surrounded by nature. I hope I can help make the Globe Aware experience a rewarding and unforgettable adventure for you.
