hello everyone! My name is Zayd. I am from the east coast of USA. I was born in Silver Spring, Maryland and grew up moving around my entire life, so I am not from one single area. I was drawn to South America by the ancient human history as well as the language (I took high school Spanish for granted). I am most excited for the outdoor trekking and traveling, that is were I feel the most at peace with myself. I am quite nervous to be outside of my element, yet the alchemical experience is what I live for. I am shy, yet very outgoing once I find a connection. Do not be thrown off if at first I seem some what isolated from the group. I simply need time to adapt to my surroundings before I open up my heart, soul and mind. I have experience with camping and wilderness backing. I have spent most of my life in the great outdoors and look forward to sharing my skills as well as learning from others to improve what skill i have already obtained. This semester will be a grand challenge for me and I am looking greatly forward to bonding with new faces in new places! I will see you all in two weeks!
