My name is Alessandro Cohen, but most people call me Sandro. I am from Houston, Texas and have been dealing with Hurricane Harvey. Luckily my house did not flood, but I have been volunteering to help other families clean up their homes and move.
I have played soccer almost all my life and also enjoy playing the piano on my own or with a band. Although I don’t know what I want to study in college, I am very interested in music. In addition to piano, I also play the guitar, bass, and drums. During the second semester of my gap year I will be living in an apartment in Florence and learning Italian. The following year I will be attending Hampshire College in Massachusetts.
I enjoy traveling and have been to many different countries. I am excited to travel in Nepal and have the chance to live in a new and different country for three months. I love the mountains and am looking forward to being challenged on the treks. I have had some experience with meditation and yoga and am excited to dive deeper into this aspect of the trip. I can’t wait to meet all of you in NY in less than two weeks!
