Joy Huyck

Director and Co-founder
I earned a BA in Christian Education from Columbia International University and studied Spanish abroad in Flamingo, Costa Rica and Bogotá, Colombia. Being bilingual has provided so many great opportunities to meet new people and serve the community. Early childhood education and learning about other cultures are my passions. I have worked with children of all ages for over 20 years, including 18 years in administration. In my free time, I enjoy participating in activities with the church, getting out in nature and taking trips with friends and family.

Luz Giraldo


I’m a fully bilingual native from Colombia and have a Bachelor’s Degree in System Engineering with a Minor in Business and Information Technology, also a Master’s Degree in Management of Information Systems from University ICESI.

As an immigrant, I believe it is my duty to help create bridges between cultures and plant a seed in children about the importance loving their neighbor. Children don’t have any bigotry or prejudice in them, they are the future of this society and we have to educate them in empathy and give them the tools to make a positive impact on the world.

English Teacher
Since I was a little girl, I have wanted to be a teacher. In high school I took my first early childhood education course then I earned my bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education from Columbia College. I have worked at My Amigos since 2013 and have loved every minute! My parents are originally from Puerto Rico. I enjoy visiting the island to see family and eat the yummy food. I have been practicing my Spanish skills and hope to be bilingual soon!
