Nobody can discover the world for somebody else. Only when we discover it for ourselves does it become common ground and a common bond and we cease to be alone.” — Wendell Berry
Ever since Alexandra took her first step into an airplane at three years old, she became hooked on travel. Since then, Alexandra traveled a few times for family vacations and loved every moment of them. She knew from early on that she wanted to pursue a career that involves traveling (or at least advocated for it).
Alexandra Cintrón Jiménez is a graduate student at a university in Washington D.C pursuing a Master’s degree in International Education. Previously, she completed a Bachelor’s degree in Teaching Language as a Second Language (TESOL). Alexandra is an English language learner (ELL), which inspired her to become an ESL teacher. She has had the opportunity to work in private and public schools and summer programs in the United States and Puerto Rico. Alexandra has held a variety of roles from tutor, teacher assistant, and summer counselor, where she worked with Special Education students and gifted students.
Alexandra is passionate about education and travel. During her undergraduate studies, she had the opportunity to participate in a volunteer program in Costa Rica and a semester exchange program in Québec, Canada. Even though Alexandra was in Costa Rica teaching English for a short period of time, it shaped the next step in her career.
