Apryl Gibson

Having visited every country that starts with Q, Apryl considers herself particularly well-traveled. Upon earning a degree in Spanish, Peace Corps sent her to Bulgaria. Finding herself hooked, she returned multiple times in different roles until Peace Corps told her to leave because it was shutting down operations in the country. She then moved to the Dominican Republic, where she led volunteer experiences with Outreach360. She has also lived and worked in Spain, Guatemala, and Turkey. Apryl holds a BA in Spanish from La Sierra University and an MIA from Columbia University. She loves variety in all forms, reading listicles entitled “Ways to Tell You’re an Extroverted Introvert”, and learning words in languages with no English equivalent. Returning to her beloved California to work with the Kiva team feels like a bilita mpash.
