Brittney Woodrum

Bangkok, Thailand

University of Kentucky ‘15
Major in Arts Administration and Hispanic Studies
Hometown: Winchester, KY

Brittney, a Kentucky native and musical fanatic, is super crazy excited to JUMP! into her second year with PiA. After a year of kicking it with the nuns, she’s snatching that $3 AirAsia ticket (plus tax) from RGN to BKK (but more likely DMK). Things she’s most excited about for the next year: learning Thai, working for the coolest nonprofit in Southeast Asia, and taking on the big mango itself with all her PiA besties. Brittney loves to host, so if you’re swinging through Bangkok, hit ‘er up!

Rarer than a Wu-lly mammoth in suburban Jersey, hotter than a Wu-ll sweater in that summertime Tokyo heat. Ask him about food.

After three years in China, Krista will now be moving to Yangon to work at a local social enterprise that uses design thinking to create products for rural communities.

Greg Zegas

Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia

Boston University '15
Major in Econ and Environmental Analysis and Policy
Hometown: Charlestown, MA

Greg’s proudest moment was once being voted most likely to win the survival TV show “Naked and Afraid.” But he plans to be neither naked nor afraid in Mongolia’s frigid climate, mostly because PiA told him not to get medivacced. If he can manage that, he’ll be able to pursue his dream of supporting clean energy development in Mongolia. Stay tuned.

Like her big (or, as some would say, 'Grande') sister, Ariana is a dangerous woman. Better watch out, or she'll have one less problem without ya.
