Hi, I’m Ansley Diaz, aka “Tree”,
I am 16 years-old and have lived in Florida, Washington DC, and now the big ATL. This year I played on the JV and varsity basketball teams at HIES and attempted at throwing shot-put and discus during the spring track season. My defining quality is my curly hair, my favorite food is anything from Chipotle, and I love a good meme. Another fun fact is that I am super clumsy and sprained my ankle 6 times 🙂
Anyways, I am super excited for this trip and can’t wait to go! I have never done this kind of trip before, so there are going to be a lot of new experiences for me. I’m not gonna lie, the bucket shower idea concerned me at first, mostly because of my hair, but I think I’ll be able to survive. I am also nervous/excited for the home stays too! I know that it will be really cool to interact with people from a completely different culture than my own and practice my Spanish!
