Disaster Relief in Puerto Rico

Ryan Kheshgi is an accounting major and an ambassador for the scholars program. During his winter break, he had the opportunity to travel with the Blue Hen Leadership Program to Luquillo, Puerto Rico to participate in a 10 day service learning experience. His service consisted of working in a team to clear overgrown land, seal a roof, protect endemic plant species, and prepare a new recreational space in the iconic El Yunque national forest. His experience gave him the opportunity to learn more about Puerto Rican culture, brush up on his Spanish, and make direct connections to his thesis which focuses on the effects of income inequality. 

The nonprofits Ryan had the privilege to work with were Community Collaborations International, Para la Naturaleza, Endeavors, and the U.S Forest Service.
