Alicia Oliva Gonzaelz fell in love with continent of Africa at the age of 15 when she travelled to the northern part just 14 kilometers from her home country of Spain. Her love for Africa led to her doing a Master's Degree in international relations and African studies and she pursues options to travel there whenever she can. Prior to this Alicia studied translation and interpretation which means she not only speaks her native Spanish but also English, Italian, French and some Arabic! Alicia is an energetic person, hardworking and full of enthusiasm. She really enjoys meeting new people and likes a challenge making her perfect for her first time on a 4 Deserts volunteer team at the Sahara Race (Namibia) 2018.
