Alam Figueroa – Leadership Fellow

Alam is from Mexico City, Mexico. He has always loved sharing his knowledge with others as well as helping people out. Alam graduated from UAEMex, a Mexican university, and majored in linguistics. He has traveled throughout Latin America and has enjoyed observing the differences in various regions. He is keen on both learning and analyzing languages.

Alam had a great experience studying Latin at the Universidad de Chile in Santiago, Chile. He is drawn to the cultural aspects of language education. According to Alam, one cannot teach a language without taking culture into consideration because they always go together and depend on each other. Alam is eager to contribute to GLN’s mission of, “Using language as a tool to help fix our world.”
