Tamara is originally from Nicaragua. She has always been interested in the social sciences and exploring the different cultural aspects of the world. She joined the English Language Institute when she was working on her undergraduate studies. Being at the ELI has given her the opportunity to interact with students from culturally diverse backgrounds, which is something she loves. During her spare time, she enjoys arts and crafts, long road trips, and spending time with her family. She also likes to read books about anthropology and languages. She is looking forward to meeting and helping new students every semester at the ELI!
