My Introduction

Hello! My name is Kennedy Roberts (I’m on the left) and I am a rising junior from Thacher. I am from Tiburon in the Bay Area and overall really excited for the trip! I have an older sister who has been on two dragons trips in the past to Senegal and Cambodia and is who really inspired me to come on this trip. I have always wanted to come to India so I thought this was the perfect opportunity!

Regarding your fourth question, on this trip, I really want to step outside my comfort zone and experience things I never have before. I already know this is going to occur many times as I have never been to a place like this but I am really excited to witness amazing cultural and environmental aspects. I am really interested in learning about someone’s day to day life, their values, and compare them to ours here. I think that seeing how other people live and complete daily tasks will be very interesting to me. I feel like India has a much different lifestyle than where I am from and I am really excited to experience it!
