    Zach's Bio:
    I am a Senior Global, Cultural and Language Studies major, with a Spanish minor. I am also taking the prerequisites for PA school, which I plan to attend after undergrad. Due to my diverse area of study I usually have to spend quite a bit of time studying, but after hitting the books I can always find something to do here at CSS. You can usually find me hanging out at the rock wall in the BWC but as soon as the snow hits I take every chance I can to get out to Spirit Mountain. I’m enjoying life now and I’m excited to see what CSS has for me in the future!

Las Esmeraldas

My class and I went on our second field experience trip this past weekend to the Esmeraldas province of Ecuador. Due to its coastal location, it has that warm, subtropical climate that I originally thought would be all of Ecuador. It’s a beautiful area full of Afro-Ecuadorian culture, and luckily we got to spend 3 days soaking it all in. The purpose of the trip was to explore the deforestation of the mangroves through activities like hunting for shellfish, treading through dense mazes of mangroves, and some interesting chats with the locals. It was all very revealing and I learned about a very different way of life. And I must say, I really enjoyed the shellfish hunt. It was a very long and dirty process that involved shoving my entire arm down many mysterious, muddy holes during the low tide while being surrounded by bugs and mangrove roots. The community of the town we stayed in, Olmedo, were all extremely friendly and I have never seen so many curious kids running around. I swear I heard, “hola!” a thousand times.
