Hi group b! My name is Ruby, I am psyched to get started on this adventure real soon! I am 18 years old and am in a gap year right now before I will be starting at Colorado College this fall. I am from Calais, Vermont but my family and I have been living in Laramie, Wyoming for 6 months because my mom was working there for a time. I spent around three of those months in a few different cities in Spain, working as an au pair and going to Spanish school. This gap year has really been about getting out of a fairly isolated state and trying to learn more about the world and myself before heading back to school for a while. South America has always been at the top of my list of places to visit, it will be amazing to both experience the outdoors and the culture down there! Excited and anxious to step out of my comfort zone again, this time not on my own but with all of you!

See you soon!
