About the teacher, Wendy Werneth

I am originally from the United States but have lived and worked in many different countries. Currently I work as a translator in an international organization, and I recently obtained a master's degree in human rights. I am passionate about environmental and social justice and creating a better world one step at a time. I am offering this class because I want to help others be the change they want to see in the world. I also love travelling, reading and learning languages, and some of my more recent interests include yoga, meditation and vegan cooking.
