I am Orestes from Chappaqua, Westchester County, New York. I was born here to parents who emigrated from Greece as young adolescents. The Ancient Greek translation of my first name, Orestes, is “man of the mountain.” This is quite apropos, as I love hiking and mountain biking!
This will be my third summer course with Dragons after Thailand: Spirit of Greng Jai two summers ago and China: Silk Road last summer. As a “seasoned” Dragons traveler, I look forward to supporting my fellow students with the transition into the new and different cultural experiences that await us. I know it will be a lifelong memorable summer for all of us!
In addition to traveling, I also love reading and drawing. This August, I will begin my undergraduate studies at Syracuse University Maxwell School of Political Science and International Relations as a future law student of International Law.
I look forward to meeting all of you on the 28th!
