Hello/Introduction : )

Hello, nice to meet you all! My name is Lina, and I’ll be traveling from Los Angeles, CA. I was born in Iraq and lived in England before moving to the United States. Because I don’t have the privilege of finding “home” in the country where I was born, I get the privilege of considering the whole world my home. I have briefly spent time around the Himalayas before and am looking forward to visiting Nepal for the first time : ).

I graduated from law school in 2014 and have been a lawyer for the last 3+ years. I love music and love to sing. I began studying kung fu earlier this year and appreciate its lessons for my mind and body. I deeply enjoy the nourishing effects of tea, incense, calligraphy, and meditation, so was very excited to read our itinerary : )!!

Looking forward to seeing our instructors and fellow travelers in person soon.
