Hi! My name is Elisa Kay Haupt and I live in Bend, Oregon. I was born in Oregon and have lived here my entire life, with the exception of living in Seattle Washington for two years. I am an upcoming junior at Bend Senior High and I turned 16 in March. I spend most of my time listening or playing music, doing art, or going on little adventures accompanied by my few-but-close friends. I’m fascinated with culture and religion, and I’m so stoked to be visiting a place with such an abundance of both. I hope for this trip to be eye opening and educational, and I also hope to make some lovely friends. See you in NY!
