My name is Daniela, I’m 18 and this is my gap year in between High School and College. I live in Maryland about 15 minutes away from DC. Last semester I took a few classes at the local community college and am really excited for this coming semester. I’ve been backpacking before so I’m ready to get back at it, although I probably haven’t been exercising enough to do so. I was born in Peru and have been speaking and learning Spanish on and off my whole life both at home and at school. Even though I was born in Peru I haven’t spent an extended period of time there and have never been to Bolivia. I look forward to seeing you in a week!
