Welcome Victoria Blades, Communications Intern
Hometown: Coatbridge, Scotland
Education: M.A (Hons) Joint French & Spanish from University of St Andrews, Scotland
About: From an early age, Victoria has been fascinated by languages and cultures different than her own and has undertaken work on different projects around the world—focusing on cross-cultural cooperation, education and community development. Most recently, she spent 6 months leading a livelihood project in rural Nicaragua where she developed a love for this part of the world, and upon returning home in December 2016 she knew that she would be back. Victoria is very excited to work with the OBCR team and hopes to learn new skills and to become more of a global citizen by working alongside people from all over the world. Her interest in alternative forms of education and personal development drives her to contribute whatever she can to make Outward Bound Costa Rica the best experience for each participant.
In her spare time, Victoria loves to be outdoors climbing the hills of Scotland or to find a quiet spot to practice yoga. She also loves to dance and to bring new recipes to her kitchen from her travels.
