Hello everyone! My name is Sam, and I’m 18 years old. I live on a small island in Rhode Island called Jamestown, and I am very excited to travel to Nepal with you all. I love outdoor activities like hiking, skiing, and swimming, and I pole vaulted for my high school track team. As for indoor activities, I enjoy reading, playing board games, and I was the captain of my high school’s robotics team. I chose to travel to Nepal with you all because the world is an immensely diverse place, and since I have lived in Rhode Island my whole life, this is a perfect opportunity for me to learn about a culture that is so different from mine.

I’m really looking forward our trip together and can’t wait to meet you all!


P.S. One of the pictures above is one that I took while hiking Mt. Washington a few weeks ago, and the other is a picture of me with my dad.
