Hi, my name is Hector Guzman and I am currently a student at Crosby High School in Waterbury, CT. I have a strong passion for education and innovation in the 21st century. I love my job as an intern at Education Connection. As an intern at Education Connection I help create online courses for students interested in innovation and 21st Century Skills. Since participating in the 2008 Summer Camp Experience, I have been driven to spread new opportunities to China and its students through the use of the Ningxia Dragon Student Ambassador Website. I currently live in Waterbury, CT and would be glad to answer any of your questions, comments or concerns.
