On November 4th, Carley and Natalie will take over @NYUWassEmployer on Twitter and give you live updates about the projects they work on, meetings they attend, and the culture of the Manna Project International office.
Carley is a New Yorker at heart, growing up in Rochester and moving to New York City to attend college. She studied at NYU where she majored in Spanish and Latin American Literatures and Cultures and completed a thesis on the presentation of Pope Francis in the Argentine press. After studying abroad in Buenos Aires and working for a summer at a non-profit in Medellín, Colombia, she was excited to get back to Latin America after graduation, and Manna seemed to be the perfect fit. In the future she hopes to continue to work on international development projects in Latin America and build bridges between the Latin America and the United States.
