I am a senior, completing degrees in elementary education and Spanish. North Park University has been an experience filled with transformative relationships and opportunities. I was able to study abroad in Chile last fall, and am hoping to teach English in South America next year as well. Your generosity is so appreciated, I can’t thank you enough.
