Hello, my name is Samantha Manno and I am an organismal biology major with a minor in Spanish. This summer, I will be traveling to Guayaquil, Ecuador to attend the Universidad de Especialidades EspÃritu Santo (UEES). I hope that one day I can be a bridge between science in the United States and South America and help with accurate communication between the two continents. I am so excited for this experience so I can improve my Spanish, learn about and live in a different culture, and hopefully do new and interesting science in Ecuador!
