Hi my name is Emma  and I’m from Mamaroneck, NYwhich is about 30 mins outside of NYC. I chose to do Dragons because I felt that I needed a break from college and to explore myself and the world more. I’ve always loved to travel and something in me told me that I needed to go on a trip like this. My brother went to Indonesia with Dragons a few years ago and highly recommended that I embark on a similar trip! I am excited to find myself spiritually and engage with a  completely  different culture than my own. I can’t wait to meet others who share a similar passion for exploration and the unknown.

I am passionate about music, writing, art, exploring, animals, and helping people. I sing and write my own music and hope to do so on the trip with others. These final weeks prior to our departure I will continue to break in my hiking boots along with taking trips to NYC, eating good food and spending time with family and friends.
