Hey Guys 🙂
My name is Emily and I am from Germany! I am beyond excited to be going to Guatemala and meeting you all so soon!
Although I know absolutely no Spanish I do speak German, English and a sprinkle of Dutch. However, I love learning languages and am enthusiastic to learn this one!
Following my gap year I will be going to University in the Netherlands.
I love traveling, creating art, singing my lungs out in the shower and dancing.
Other than that I also laugh a lot (mostly about myself) and occasionally make puns (which usually end up being horrible).
In high school, I (along with a friend) created a club called Charity Fashion Show which raised money for the UN Girl Up Foundation. I loved doing this as I was helping girls in underdeveloped countries get access to education and health services and keep them safe and free from violence. I love that I was helping girls while having the chance to be creative.
Super pumped for this wild adventure in Guatemala! 🙂
