Hello! My name is Grady and I’m going into 8th grade at Nueva. I’m very excited to go on this trip and become closer with everyone in the group. I chose to go on this trip because I wanted to go last year but unfortunately, I was too young. I think this is a great opportunity to be pushed out of my comfort zone and to experience such a different lifestyle. I’m very excited to be able to push myself and I would say that my goal this trip is to be pushed out of my comfort zone as much as I can. For example, I can try to only speak Spanish in my homestay, or I could try something I never thought I would do. A little about me. My hobbies include playing sports, eating a lot of food, and spending time with my family and friends. I’m very excited for this trip and can’t wait to see you all bright and early on Tuesday!
