Maya Burgess, Seville, Veritas

When studying at George Fox, I spent a summer in Panama and a semester abroad in Spain. Through these two very different experiences, I fell in love with Spanish culture – so much so that I moved to Honduras after graduating! I got a job as a high school literature teacher in a bilingual, Christian school. I honestly couldn't have found a more fitting job for me!
