Hey, my name is Sam and I am from Milton, Massachusetts. I am a sophomore at Colby College in Maine where I am a Global Studies major and Geology minor. I love playing and watching any sport that includes a ball, but I especially love Baseball and Squash which I play in college. I am a diehard Boston sports fan. I also enjoy hiking, fishing, and being outside. In the summer I work for a construction company on North Haven, and island in Maine. This summer when I wasn’t working I enjoyed hanging out with friends and fly fishing for Striped Bass. My favorite TV show is Game of Thrones. Unlike most of you guys I have not spent much time outside of the United States which is why I am very excited for this trip. However, I have been to Israel and Paris.
On this trip I am excited to experience a way of life that is entirely different from what I am used too. While we are in Myanmar I am really excited to learn about the people and to see what types of problems they are facing. It will also be interesting to see how things like money, religion, and family structure play a role in peoples lives. I also can’t wait to see how building and fishing practices in Myanmar differ from ours in the US. Myanmar is supposed to be beautiful so I am also very excited to spend time in nature and see what it has to offer.
Wicked excited to travel with you guys. See you in a week!
