Mekong 2019 intro

Hello hello!! My name is Olivia Baldassare, I am 18 years old and was born in Manhattan. I currently live in Portsmouth NH, a small town on the sea coast. I just graduated High School, and after my year off I will be attending the University of San Francisco. Originally I was planning on participating in the Bhutan semester, but plans changed and here we are!! I chose this trip for a number of reasons, number one being that we will be traveling in SE Asia. I am so excited to explore so many new countries, beliefs, and cultures. I am passionate about broadening my horizons and learning as much as I can about new ideas and people. These next few weeks will mostly consist of spending time with my family, working, and doing a concerning amount of last minute packing. I cannot wait to meet all of you:))) see you soon
