My name is Sydney, and I’m from a small town around an hour north of New York City. I just graduated high school (a boarding school right outside Princeton) and will be attending Davidson College in the fall of 2018.
I decided to spend this fall in Nepal because I have always loved traveling and discovering different cultures, and I haven’t yet been able to explore South Asia. While I did grow up doing a good amount of hiking, I wouldn’t call myself an experienced trekker, so I’m excited for this trip to challenge me in new ways.
A fun fact about me is that I was nominated as the best rapper for my school’s yearbook my senior year. Unfortunately I didn’t actually end up winning that superlative because I’m actually pretty bad at rapping but I thought I’d post this anyways:
hi my name is Sydney, and this is my yak,
I’m excited for our homestays, to backpack
and to spend time off the beaten track
by the end maybe I’ll have a sixpack
even though I’m posting this I swear I’m no maniac
I’m just trying to be like Kodak Black
Can’t wait to meet you all in just under two weeks!
