“No man is worth his salt who is not ready at all times to risk his well-being, to risk his body, to risk his life, in a great cause.” ~ Theodore Roosevelt
Education has always been an important dynamic in Ryan Gomez’s life. An alumna of Florida State University (B.S.) and Florida Atlantic University (MPA), he currently works in Tallahassee as an academic advisor to students in the FSU College of Social Sciences. He coached baseball and taught history in the Broward County public school system prior to his time in higher education.
After venturing outside the United States for the first time in 2014, he has made it a personal goal to see as much of the world as his credit limit can afford. With trips to Rio de Janeiro, Bali, and Costa Rica under his belt, he decided to take the plunge and is seeking a full immersion this time around. Moving to Spain is a home-coming of sorts for Ryan, as he’ll be returning to his ancestral roots for the first time. Spain is one of the most historically rich and culturally diverse regions on earth. He’s excited to learn its story, as well as that of his family’s. Teaching abroad gives him the opportunity to use the organizational and people skills he acquired in education to travel the world and make meaningful connections.
Armed with the love and support of his friends and family back home, he’s geared up for an adventure. Buckle up and get in for the ride!
