Co-Director of Training
Daniel is a fourth-year Molecular, Cell, and Developmental Biology Major from Mission Viejo, California. In Fall 2019, Daniel was drawn to FISH by the opportunity to immerse in a service-oriented community, learn about global health, and further develop his Spanish skills. Through FISH, Daniel learned much about culturally competent volunteering and the challenges people face in the pursuit of healthy living. As Co-Director of Training, Daniel hopes to provide FISH associates with exciting and enriching ways of furthering their Spanish so that FISH can more deeply connect with the residents of Maclovio Rojas and better fulfill its mission to provide sustainable, compassionate service. After graduation, Daniel aspires to attend medical school and explore the field of medical research.
