I was born and raised in San Jose, California. I am going to be a rising senior, meaning I am going to be stressing over college applications going into the school year. In my free time, I love to spend it with my family, and friends. I also watch Netflix, and I tried to stay active. I can’t wait to explore everything in Peru. It will be my first time backpacking, but I am ready for the adventure.
For the pre-course assignments, I read the article How the Potato Changed the World. I thought it was really cool how they incorporate the potatoes into their food and the history behind it. I read Climate Change Could Destroy His Home in Peru, which was about the legal side of climate change and how climate change has impacted the earth and the land negatively.
I am so excited to meet all you!
