My name is Sophie Reeves, and I am stoked to be going on this massive adventure with all of you! Some facts about me are that I live in the lovely Boulder, Colorado, I am 16, I play soccer year-round, and I love to horseback ride, backpack, scuba dive, and travel! I also love to be outdoors and/or sit in my hammock and write. Though I have never been on a trip this big and unique before, I went to a summer sleepaway camp in Estes Park from 2012-2016, and I spent a month last summer with my aunt, uncle, and cousin in Germany, France, and Austria. I absolutely adore animals, and I volunteered many hours last semester at the Boulder Humane Society. I have a black and white Schnoodle dog named Cooper!
I chose to go on this program because I am very interested in the region and learning a lot about Hinduism and Buddhism. I am super excited to go to Asia, as I have never been before, and I am most excited about learning new things and staying with homestays. I am looking forward so much to this trip mainly because I have full confidence that the things I learn in West Bengal and Sikkim will truly change my perspective on life.
I am thrilled to meet all of you!! Less than a month away!
