Danisa is originally from Southern California where she graduated from the University of California, San Diego with an International Studies degree. Danisa began her experience working with kids through her AmeriCorps position with Energy Service Corps where she helped teach kids in the community about renewable energy and sustainability. After graduation Danisa combined her passion for travel and her desire to help children in need to create a volunteer trip to Cusco, Peru where she was a teaching assistant at the local kindergarten that supports impoverished children whose mothers work at the local market. Upon moving to Seattle, Danisa's research on local non-profits dedicated to international sustainability brought her to O2A as the Communication Intern. She enjoys helping O2A and looks forward to the opportunity to travel with O2A to help vulnerable children in need!
