My name is Andrea Giacomini, but people usually call me Drea/Dre. I’m so excited to start our amazing adventure! I was born and raised in the Valley of West Marin, CA, which is about an hour away from San Francisco. I love to travel and have been fortunate enough to see and experience many places in the world. However, my wanderlust has not yet been satiated. Our journey in Guatemala is the first step in my gap year, I plan to then travel for six months in Indonesia/Asia/Europe. After that, who knows! I enjoy hiking, swimming and pretty much anything outdoors. I am also an artist and love to dance, cook and spend time with my friends and family. I was motivated to do the Dragons program because I am determined to be fluent in Spanish. I have taken four years of language and traveled to both Ecuador and Nicaragua for shorter term immersion and environmental restoration projects with Global Student Embassy. But, I still have a ways to go 🙂 Our trip is coming up so soon, only 9 more days! I hope you’re all as excited as I am. I can’t wait to meet everyone and hear your stories. I attached some pictures of myself/my brothers and I/some of my previous adventures. See you soon!
