Hi everyone! My name is Nixie and I am 13 years old and will be going into 8th grade at Nueva. I am excited for Thailand because I want to experience the culture of Thailand and how it differs from our culture. I love to traveling as well as basketball, scuba diving and parkour. The quote I have chosen from the essay Why We Travel by Pico Iyer is “We travel, initially, to lose ourselves; and we travel, next, to find ourselves.” I hope to experience this in Thailand and wherever I travel. See you in Thailand!
