Zaidi Barreto has a knack for languages. As a senior classics major, she’s at the advanced level in Latin and Ancient Greek, and she started taking Modern Greek as a CYA student this fall semester. After her full year with College Year in Athens, she hopes to enter graduate school in order to become a teacher. For this reason, she was the perfect fit for a volunteer role that would let her practice teaching while taking action on an issue she cares about: teaching English to refugee children with METAdrasi.
