My name is Macy Ryan and I’m looking forward to meeting everyone when we begin our journey in New York!
I am also from Boulder and have lived here almost my entire life. Boulder is one of my favorite places to be in the world, I love living so close to the mountains and being able to have the outdoors in my backyard. When I was eleven and twelve I lived abroad in Spain for two years with my family. Being able to explore a different culture then is what sparked my interest in travelling and learning about new cultures. Those two years challenged me in terms of leadership, language, and trust. Since then I have always been trying to recreate those challenges; I know that going to Nepal will be a challenge in many ways similar to that and in new ways! I’m and so excited to be able to learn about Nepal first hand and explore the country over the next three months.
I graduated early from high school this December and will be going to Gonzaga University in the fall. Two of my biggest passions are mountain biking and skiing. I was on the high school mountain bike team and loving riding around the trails of Boulder and the rest of Colorado. I have been skiing ever since I could walk and love to spend my weekends in the mountains skiing with friends and family. I also have recently been doing boxing and have really been loving it!
I’m exciting to face new adventures and challenges in Nepal, and although I’m a bit nervous I know that the experience will be amazing!
See you all soon
