Hi Everyone! My name is Kayla and I’m going to be a 9th grader at Nueva. I’m really excited to be going to the DR and hope to get to know everyone in the group better. I chose to go on this trip because I had heard about the dragons program in my past years at Nueva and I think that this a great opportunity to experience a different culture. My personal goal for this trip to make the most of every experience and practice trying new things outside of my comfort zone. As a group, I hope we can all get closer and have a fun time getting to know each other. My hobbies include watching the Bachelor/Bachelorette/Bachelor in Paradise, painting, playing soccer, and spending time with my friends and siblings. See everyone next week!
