My Introduction


My name is Beck and I live about 15 minutes away from Washington D.C. I really love music and part of the reason I’m going on this program is to increase my knowledge of music by studying Indonesian instruments and such.  I also plan on bringing my acoustic guitar to share some of the music from our culture with my home stays (and maybe y’all as well 😂).

I’m also excited to say, that once this program is over, i’m flying to Sri Lanka where I will be touring the island with my cousin.   After my gap year I will attend Miami University in Oxford, Ohio next fall and hopefully major in Business and Management, but before that I plan on touring America and staying with all of my friends who are currently in colleges across the U.S.

I’m really looking forward to experiencing this crazy adventure with all of you and I hope you all are as well.
