Hi my name is Andrea Villalba and I’m a freshman at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, CT, majoring in Political Sciences and Criminal Justice. I spent my years of high school at Saint Joseph Preparatory in Brighton playing soccer and being part of a variety of clubs.

Outside school I was part of the Youth Choir at the St. John-St. Paul Collaborative, and I still participate when I’m home from college. I also belonged to the Girls Scouts. In college I continue to be part of the liturgical choir, and I belong to the Criminal Justice and Pre Law Club.

I’m so excited to be part of the group going to World Youth Day in Portugal and to have the opportunity to continue growing in my faith. I love meeting new people and traveling, not to mention this is a great way to grow in my faith. Especially with new people and in a new place. I am really outgoing and I never miss out on an opportunity to make new friends. I can’t wait to meet everyone.

Please consider sponsoring me and supporting this pilgrimage with your donations and your prayers.

Thank you to all of the people who are making this pilgrimage possible!
