Hello everyone! I just wanna start off by saying how excited I am to embark on this adventure with all you beautiful people. I’m sure the next 3 months will be full of excitement, challenges and learning. I’ll keep this introduction short because we have a quarter of a year to get to know eachother 🙂 Wonder and adventure make my heart sing, this is why I study Molecular Biology at UBC. I am obsessed with science and learning about the unknown. I’m originally from Palestine but I grew up in Egypt my whole life. I chose the Perú and Bolivia trip due to the rich culture, history and beautiful landscapes. During highschool, I completed a year of Spanish, so I’m still a beginner but it’s definitely a goal of mine to be fluent in Spanish in the near future. This course plays an important role in my life as it allows me to get closer to achieving one of my main goals that has been on my list for a while and it gives me a 3 month period of no technology in my life. This gives me a chance to live in the moment, reset and indulge in completely new and intriguing cultures. Wish you all the best in packing and I’ll see you in Miami!
