Hi everyone! My name is Grace and I am 17 years old although I will be 18 by the time we leave for Nepal. I graduated from a small boarding school this past May and have deferred from Ithaca College until next fall! My family has recently moved to Indiana during the school year where my dad works at a boarding school, but I have spent most of my time in Connecticut and New Hampshire.

I am excited about all aspects of this trip, but I think I am most excited to learn about the history and culture of Nepal as well as the Buddhist Retreat!

In my free time I enjoy making films, reading, listening to music, being with my family and hanging out with my friends. This past summer, I have spent most of my time working at a local farmstand, but am now excited to explore the world! After this trip I hope to be able to travel to Europe in the spring.

I am so excited to meet all of you and travel to Nepal soon!

Also, this is a picture of me in my sister (I am the one on the right)!
