Your bios already have me hooked and so excited to speak with you guys! I’m from Evanston IL (I live a couple blocks outside Chicago) and it’s a progressive bubble that has already proven hard to leave. I spent most of last semester in Kenya on a program with all British people so you’ll hear me throw in the occasional UK banter. When trying to communicate with kids there my first instinct was to speak Spanish to them, so I’m excited for that to actually work. I’m so glad many of you are into music because I’m banking on you to show me some new stuff and hopefully bring a speaker:) Right now I’m seeing what I can do with my dad’s old iPod Nano.
Here are some fast facts: I’ve been going to a sleep away camp for the last 10ish years and will work there this summer, I have 2 cats but am open to dogs as long as they don’t breath aggressively on me, I go on a service trip to Kentucky every year to improve homes, I like art (like ceramics, drawing, writing, photography (but I’m not remotely dedicated enough to claim it as my thing, though you will catch me journaling)), I’m going to Tufts University next year and am interested in some form of Environmental studies, I like playing sports (Soccer is my main but also anything). Just read the itinerary and had myself a little cry – I can’t believe we’ll be living it in such a short amount of time. I’m nervous and excited and hope this is ~life changing~~
