Hello, my name is Genesis Kebede, I am 17 and live in Longmont (near Boulder), Colorado. I was born and in Tennessee and raised in Austin, Texas. I am on the swim, tennis, and mock trial team at my school. I love to read mystery and fantasy books (lots of Cassandra Clare, John Grisham, and Dan Brown). I also volunteer at the humane society taking care of dogs. Animals and the environment are my passion and I would like to become an environmental attorney when I grow up. I have never been camping, but I have always wanted to try it out. I can’t wait to meet everyone and explore Thailand together!
