Hey guys!! My name is Lucy and I’m pumped to meet y’all in a few days. I grew up in New York City on the Upper West Side and graduated in June. Last summer I almost did a trip with Dragons, but ended up postponing to play volleyball and finish the college recruiting process. I took this year to do the things that I have not been able to do, and to learn in a different context, away from schools and institutions.
This past year I was involved in some organizing around indigenous sovereignty and water rights in New York, and worked with Lenape organizers and water protecters. I have been taking Spanish for four years, but have never really been able to speak it comfortably. I hope to consolidate everything I’ve learned over the past few years , and to gain a better understanding for the language and the culture that it comes from.
I’m really looking forward to meeting you all, and embarking on this adventure!
