Amber Dobrzensky first visited Nicaragua in early 1999, traveling down from North America just a few months after Hurricane Mitch devastated the country. She spent six months there teaching English and toiling on the construction of a rural medical clinic. As a side project, she spent another month filming and researching an educational documentary on the distribution of international aid in the wake of the hurricane.
Amber eventually returned to Central America on assignment and settled in Managua, where she has lived for the last four years. After revisiting all of the sites she became familiar with on her first journey to Nicaragua, she is now getting to know the remote corners she didn’t see the first time around.
Amber has worked in London as a web editor for Distinct’ive Records and WorldReviewer.com. She is also a contributor to the Nicaragua Dispatch, a writer and editor for Hecho Magazine, and a former contributing writer and researcher for Rough Guides, covering Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and Panama. When she’s not writing, Amber can be found organizing creative workshops for young Nicaraguans, or trying to catch some waves at the beach.
