Hi everyone! I can’t wait to meet you all in about a week! My name is Harrison, I’m 18, and I’m from Vermont. I decided to defer from college for a year to give me time to explore the world and remember what I’m passionate about outside of a stressful school environment. I chose Nepal because everything I read made me want to step foot in this country that works to maintain its identity while impacted by China and India, influenced by Hinduism and Buddhism, and that contains the magical and alluring Himalayas.

I play soccer and tennis, downhill ski, play piano, and enjoy the outdoors (you can’t step out your front door in Vermont without interacting with nature at least a little). I like board games/card games, getting to know new people, joking around with friends, and exploring new places.

I’m looking forward to meeting you all very soon and beginning our adventure together!

P.S. The photos here are of me with my cousins, goofing around with some friends, and a shot from graduation.
