Julia Catalán Cervantes

Julia was born in the Apurimac region in the southern Andean mountains of Peru. She is a native Quechua speaker and learned her second language, Spanish, when she was 16. Political violence forced her to leave that region, and she migrated to Cuzco. Julia has worked with the program since 2010, performing administrative duties and supporting students and staff. In 2013, she became the coordinator in charge of rural homestays and field activities on Taquile Island.
