Hey !

My name is Allyson and I’m an 18 y/o living outside of San Francisco. I’m super excited to meet everyone soon, and to travel together for the next three months.

I graduated high school in June and deferred college for a year to spend time abroad. The programs offered by Dragons seemed like once-in-a-lifetime opportunities to seek connections between different cultures — something I’m really interested in as a second-gen Filipino-American.

I love the outdoors, and spent a lot of this summer hiking, swimming, or climbing at the rock gym near my house. When I go out with friends, we’re usually watching films, taking BART into Oakland and Berkeley, playing videogames, or drinking boba. At home, I read and write. I’m a huge fan of Parks & Rec. I love mangoes.

Can’t wait to see you all!
