Hi! My name is Soren. I am from Boulder, Colorado. I just graduated high school this past spring. I decided to take a gap year to explore the world and my interests before heading off to college. I think a gap year will be a great way for me to learn more about the world and its many different cultures as well as having fun and getting to meet some really cool people! After my gap year I will be attending The University of Puget Sound in Tacoma Washington. Some of my hobbies are going for hikes with my puppy, rowing, and hanging out with friends. I’m really excited for the cultural immersion and the learning service as well as the homestays. I’m slightly nervous about staying healthy I guess. One fun fact about me is that I am colorblind so don’t ask my opinion on the color of a shirt lol. I really look forward to meeting everyone. I am super pumped to meet all of you and start on our journey.
