My name is Oscar Rigo. I’m from San Francisco California, and I am 17 years old. I’m am going to be a repeat Junior at Northfield Mount Hermon in Massachusetts next school year. I am very excited to join you on this adventure to Myanmar.

Somethings about me, I like many things, I have an interest in humanities, but am also curious of sciences, arts, and cultures. Some of my hobbies are playing video games, exercising, watching movies. I also enjoy watching documentaries and educational videos. I like to part take in socializing and always look forward to making new friends. I aspire to in a professional career to working in the Aerospace industry where I can work on making all my sci-fi dreams come true.

On this trip to Myanmar, I hope to gain a perspective on the way to live life, connect with other cultures, and find meaning. I am quite familiar with the political situation that has occurred in the country for the last half-century and so is interested in digging deeper into that. In addition, I am also really excited about the food! Overall, the entire country draws me, and am very excited to explore this new part of the world that I’ve never been to.

I can’t wait to start this journey and learn new things!
