Hi everyone! My name is Lauren and I’m from Westport, Connecticut, but I spend lots of time in Vermont so I love being outdoors especially to ski, hike, and play soccer. I decided to take a gap semester before starting college in February after feeling a desire to travel more and feeling like I needed a break from solely learning in the classroom. I came across Dragons through one of my teachers in school. She shared stories of past students she knows having amazing experiences that made me really want to challenge myself in similar ways. Traveling has been a big part of my life, but I have never been anywhere like West Africa so I am incredibly excited to explore a new culture and see some beautiful new places with everyone.

Can’t wait to meet everyone on the 15th!!
