Student Introduction

Hi everybody! My name is Henry Herrington and I’m from Seattle, Washington. I just graduated from Lakeside School, where I especially enjoyed learning about English and history. I also played trumpet in the school jazz band and ran cross-country.

Now that school is out, I spend a lot of time listening to music and playing jazz with friends in a combo. I still enjoy reading and learning about history, and am looking forward to doing both in Nicaragua and Guatemala. I also love spending time with my two dogs.

On this trip, I’m most looking forward to improving my conversational Spanish in an exciting environment, and using it to connect with local people.

One thing that surprised me in the Kixajo’ video was how inclusive they were. They invited little kids and old men to dance in the video, which for some reason I rarely see.

Thanks for reading and I can’t wait to meet you all!
