My name is Phoebe Wong, and I live in the San Francisco Bay Area. I’m super excited to meet all of you! I hadn’t gone out of the country much before last summer, but after going to China with my school, I knew I wanted to travel more. I play volleyball, debate, and do mock trial (I must confess I am a bit of a nerd 🙂 ). I love to read and learn, but this summer I’m looking to learn beyond the confines of a classroom. Especially as it is so easy to get bogged down in the details of our daily lives, I am excited to meet new people, learn about different religions, and explore a setting far different than anything I have ever experienced. To be honest, the fact that I will be joining you on this trip still seems surreal, and I just feel so lucky to be able to participate in this program.
See you soon!
Ps. A few people’s intros have mentioned their love of animals and I also love dogs! Enjoy the attached photo of my little doggo.
