About Alyssa Hopun

Alyssa's intrigue with International Development was sparked on her trip to Peru in 2009. Following that experience, she earned Bachelor's degrees from Miami University in International Studies and Spanish. Over the course of her university career she studied and carried out projects in Panama, Spain, and more of Peru. Her Latin America love at that point having been set, she then joined the Community Enterprise Solutions team as a Field Leader in the Dominican Republic. Not having had enough after those three short months, at the beginning of 2015 she followed the organization to Nicaragua, where she now works as a Field Consultant.
"When a resolute young fellow steps up to the great bully, the world, and takes him boldly by the beard, he is often surprised to find it comes off in his hand, and that it was only tied on to scare away the timid adventurers." -Ralph Waldo Emerson
