Hi everybody. My name is Sophie and I’m super excited to be traveling to India. I’m 18 years old and live in Washington DC. I’ve decided to take a gap year and then attend Catholic University in the fall of 2018. I’m taking a gap year because I want to travel and take a break from school. When I attend college I am hoping to major in comparative religion. If that does not work out, some of my other interests are sociology, anthropology, and psychology.

My number one goal in life is to see as much of the world as I can. I want to get to know different peoples, cultures, religions, landscapes, arts, etc. I’ve sung in a choir for many years and have toured with them in China and France. I am now eager to become a real traveler! I’m also interested in learning more about meditation in India, as I have done TM (Transcendental Meditation) for the last three years.

I’m looking forward to meeting everybody and getting to know all of you!
