What’s up everybody, I’m Asa and I’m from San Francisco. I’m in the middle of a gap year and have spent the first half it working for the National Parks Service and then at a sports store. I love playing sports, being outside, and listening to music. A family friend of mine went on this trip and told me it was amazing, so I’m really excited to be going on this journey with all of you. I’ve spent a bunch of time hiking and backpacking and am really looking forward to that part of the program. I’m also really hoping to improve my Spanish. I was pretty widely considered to be the worst Spanish student in my high school so I definitely wanna get better! Looking forward to meeting all of you soon.
