Jordan Bowles was a participant in the summer immersion trip of 2017. She is currently a junior attending Ballard High School. When she first heard about Global Visionaries in her Spanish class freshman year, she was drawn in by the opportunity for an immersion experience in Guatemala and the prospect of working in a hospital with kids. After Jordan traveled to Guatemala and worked in the hospital, she found it a life changing experience. It affirmed her dreams to become an elementary school teacher while also teaching her the importance of body language, caring and being there for others, and understanding the impact that just a persons presence can have.
Jordan has spent many of her free days and summers traveling and boating in Puget Sound. She fuels her passion for kids through volunteering with the Girl Scouts day camp every summer as well as nannying. She loves spending time outside in nature and expanding her horizons with new experiences.
