Hi Guys! My name is Teagan and I am from California. I was born in South Africa and later moved to the states with my family. I have always felt connected to my roots in South Africa and growing up there has definitely impacted my view on a lot of different things. I knew I wanted to take a gap year since my freshman year of high school and wanted to find a program that had to do with travel, exploration, and immersing yourself in an new culture. When I found Dragons I knew this was the right fit for me. I am very passionate about intercultural learning and believe that having a broad world view is extremely important to be a better global citizen. I love photography and film and will potentially be pursuing that next year in college. Although I have never done anything as intensive as this program, I am so excited for this challenge! I absolutely can’t wait to meet everyone and am looking forward to a great semester.
