Melanie Izard

Melanie grew up loving language. She started with German in middle school, began Spanish in high school, and continued to add languages to her repertoire throughout her college experience. She is currently a student at American University and studied abroad last semester in Costa Rica.
Melanie is passionate about learning languages, the environment, human rights, and women’s rights. When she isn’t interning with GLN or studying for her classes, she volunteers with dog rescues and reads books.
