Hello everyone! My name is Stuart Myers, I currently live in Portland, OR, but I was raised in Nashville, TN and I was born in Colorado Springs.

I have been spending this past fall on my gap year and I plan to go to college this fall. The main reasoning behind my choice to do a Dragons program has to do with the Nepal program either offering things I am interested in (hiking, trekking, language study) or pushing me into activities that I have not done often (homestays and learning trade skills). I am incredibly excited to explore a completely different culture for three months and view how other people live their lives. I hope to get to know my fellow adventurers very well and create lasting friendships for the future.

I love watching and making films (I will quote Groundhog Day or Parent Trap at least 20 times by the end of the trip), reading books, hiking/ camping, and doing yoga. I love talking to new people and learning their life stories. Leading up to the trip I am reading, hiking, spending some time with my family before going on another three-month journey, and making short videos as a freelance videographer.

I can’t wait to meet you all and I hope we have an amazing journey together!
