Introducing: Erika del Cid

Erika is a Virginian with Salvadoran parents. Her love for international travel began when she was an exchange student in Hyderabad, India. After finishing undergrad, she moved to a small town in northern Spain where she was an assistant English teacher at two elementary schools. She later went back to the US and worked as a Parent Liaison where her job was to help immigrant students and their families understand and navigate the US school system. After two years of working in the US, she longed to be abroad so she packed her bags and went to Mexico City to study Spanish at UNAM. Afterwards, she volunteered at an organization on the coast of Ecuador and had the chance to backpack through Peru and Colombia.

She is currently a Master’s student studying migration at the University of Copenhagen. Her focus is the process of identity construction of the 2nd generation immigrants and individuals who either call “home” to many places or nowhere.

In her spare time she likes to read fiction and non-fiction, go dancing, try new foods, and explore her current home, Denmark.
