Paul Siguenza understands the challenges that the National University of Education’s (UNAE) Centro de Idiomas’ (Language Center) 17 teachers face. Before starting his current role as director, he was a language center teacher himself. Providing high-quality instruction to UNAE’s 2,000 students drives Paul, which is why this past spring he participated in Peace Corps’ Virtual Service.
On May 19, Peace Corps held this year’s second installment of the Thought Leaders Forum, featuring three returned Peace Corps Volunteers who are leaders in the field of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI).
“I wanted to join the Peace Corps because I wished to further connect with my Latin American heritage, to exchange with another Hispanic culture and better understand the intricacies of the Latinx identity” - Yvette Garcia, a community economic development Volunteer in Dominican Republic.
