Andrea Vilorio, HS '13
(pictured above with her students)
was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Ethiopia for 27 months from 2014-2016.
She taught English to 100+ Ethiopian high school students and led both student and teacher conversational clubs. In addition, she trained female students and staff on making reusable menstruation pads and taught about the reproductive system, contraceptive usage and infectious diseases at summer camps. Andrea also coordinated and facilitated an annual week-long health camp for both girls and boys where she taught about healthy attitudes and behaviors, as well as worked with the local health clinic to provide Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) projects to her community.
Andrea currently works for Peace Corps Headquarters in D.C. in the Office of Medical Services and is perfectly content to practice her Amharic, the official Ethiopian language, and eat injera!
