About Me

Processed with VSCO with c1 preset

Hello everyone – My name is Becca Bleier!

I graduated a semester early from High School with the goal of traveling before heading to college, which is how I found Dragons. I have a strong interest in animals and Game of Thrones, as well as many other shows. I am outgoing and have been told I am quite funny.

I’m not gonna lie – I have always liked to hike, but have never done anything remotely like the hiking we’re going to do on this program. But, I’m ready to push myself totally out of my comfort zone, and excited to be immersed in a whole different style of living, language, and culture. And, I don’t know any Spanish either, so if you are worried about that too, you are not alone!

I’ve been conflicted over the past few months on whether I am ready for the rigors of this course, and honestly, it’s been stressful at times. I flip between thinking “how am I going to actually climb these mountains?” to thinking “I can push myself to do anything!”. Right now,  I am thinking that this trip is a mountain (literally and metaphorically) that we will all work together to climb. I’m looking forward to meeting all of you very, very soon!
