Hi everyone! My name is Megan Murphy and I’m from Nashville, TN. I just graduated high school and I’m about to start my freshman year at UNC Chapel Hill. I’m super excited to meet all of you. I love studying Spanish, history, and global politics. I wanted to go on this trip to expand my worldview and explore the history of popular indigenous uprisings in Bolivia. At home in my free time I typically listen to music, hang out with friends, volunteer, or read. I love hiking, and have done pretty technical hikes, but I have never been backpacking before. I’m looking forward to pushing myself and growing in Bolivia. I will see you all in about a week!
