Hi I'm Izzy and I'm a New York City native living in Barcelona for about three years. In NYC, I am a Clinical Psychologist that has worked with the juvenile justice population for about 5 years. In Barcelona, I am doing a post graduate program in photography, which I intend to use to develop a phototherapy program in the future. I am currently the language assistant at Jesuitas Clot and have been there for two years. I have solo travelled to over 10 countries and its been a great experience sharing my love of travel now with students on exchanges. I am currently involved in the Erasmus+ migration project which has allowed me to travel to Belgium and Sicily with groups of students.
