My name is Jenna and I am so excited to begin this journey with all of you. I live in Potomac, Maryland, which is just outside of Washington, DC. I have an older brother named Zack and a dog named Scout. I swim competitively because I lack the hand-eye coordination that other sports require 🙂 I LOVE to travel. A recent trip to Thailand inspired me to sign up for this program (see photo of me being scared on an elephant). For fun I enjoy attempting to play guitar and hanging out with my friends. I also love watching ice hockey and this week I will definitely be cheering for my favorite team, the Washington Capitals, in the Stanley Cup finals! I chose this course because I want to explore a new culture. I am very interested in religion, especially Hinduism and Buddhism, and am eager to learn more about them throughout the trip. I am also excited/nervous about the homestays but I have a feeling they will be one of the highlights of this adventure.
I can’t wait to meet you all in less than a month!
