RSI Amity Intern Spotlight

RSI Amity Intern Spotlight

This spring we will be putting a spotlight on our 22-23 RSI Interns. Our goal is to feature each of our ten interns weekly for the RSI school community. We want our school community to get to know these amazing young people more personally.  Amity Interns are one of the most unique characteristics of our school. They serve as global ambassadors of their respective home countries while enhancing and expanding our students' global awareness with cultural exchanges/intercambios culturales. At RSI, Interns also help support Spanish language and literacy development of our students across all grade levels.  

This week we are spotlighting: Mayra Zapata 

Home Country: Ibagué / Colombia

A little about me: 

I am 18 years old. I live with my parents, brother, sister in law, and niece. My mom is a cashier and my dad is an independent worker. My brother is 25, he’s got a daughter, she is 5 yo. We have 2 dogs and a cat, we love animals. 

I still have some years left to finish my degree. When I finish, I first want to work in an elementary school. But later in my career, I also want to become a university teacher one day.

I enjoy reading. I love spending time with my family, friends and my pets. I like to sing and I absolutely love listening to music.
