Hi! I’m Lucy and I’m going into 8th grade at Nueva. I love playing lacrosse, listening to music and being with my friends and family. I chose to go on this trip because it seemed like a very special opportunity that I wouldn’t get to experience many times in my life.

I have heard so many great things about the Thailand trip last year, so when I heard about this one, I was so eager to sign up. I have many goals for this trip. My biggest goals are to become closer with everyone in my group (especially the non Nueva kids) and to go outside of my comfort zone many times on this trip.

I’m very excited to try new things with new people and I’m also very excited to be unplugged for awhile. It will enable me to be so much more present and enjoy this experience. I am the most excited for the homestay, but at the same time I am the most nervous for it. It’s going to be super cool to experience, but also very scary to be living in someone else’s home in a very different culture. I’m nervous for a few other things on this trip, but I am confident that I will get through it with the help of my friends.

Being in a place so different from home will be hard, but I’m excited to take on the new challenge. On this trip, I am the person that you can come to with any problems and I’m always here to support you and help you through things. I’m sooo excited! See you all on Tuesday! 🙂
