Trek View on Nepal: Himalayan Studies Gap Year Semester with Where There Be Dragons

Student Introduction

Hello all and namaste,

Sorry that I’m a bit late to the party. Nice to meet you all! My name is Aaron Lee, I’m 19 years old, and I’m from Menlo Park, California. For the past month and a half I’ve been at home working at a local restaurant and pub that I worked at this past summer. Before that, I was in East Africa for three months on a gap program similar to ours, but with more of an emphasis on service learning across Uganda, Kenya, and Tanzania with ARCC (Adventures Cross Country). Next fall I’ll be attending University of Pennsylvania to study Electrical Engineering (probably).

In my free time, I enjoy running, singing, and generally picking up or just learning about new things all the time. I’m so excited to meet you all in a couple of days and get on the road! It’s been strange being back at home and not on the move and constantly seeing or experiencing new things. I can’t wait to meet so many amazing people, trek through the beautiful scenery, and experience life in Nepal with all of you!
