Meet our Princeton in Latin America Fellow 2017-2018: Natassja Ruybal
Natassja graduated from Pepperdine University with a B.A. in international studies and management, and a minor in nonprofit management. Originally from Quito, Ecuador, she grew up in five developing countries throughout Africa and Latin America. Her childhood gave her a deep understanding of the harsh realities most people in the world face, and a desire to work hard to find solutions to those problems. As a recent graduate, she moved to Australia and worked at YGAP, an international development organization. Natassja is now extremely excited to start this journey in the Dominican Republic, supporting the Yspaniola team in various communications, development, and operations projects.
