Alyssa Gasca studied abroad at the Umbra Institute in Perugia while she was a student of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at CU Boulder. She lives outside of Denver making her the only Apprentice outside of the Eastern time zone. Alyssa brings unique perspectives to this position as the only Apprentice who had her time abroad cut short by the pandemic. She is also a first-generation Hispanic college student and comes to us with experience working with other first-generation students with Hispanic and Latinx backgrounds.

"I am excited to help encourage students to find a program that suits them and send them abroad. It's such an incredible opportunity that I would like to assist as many students as possible."
