hey y’all! I’m leo from houston, TX. I’m joining this course as part of my gap year before starting college at UCLA. Currently, I’m working at a juice store (the kind that sells $9 bottles of cold press to suburban moms), and counting down the days until we leave for Cusco!

I’m excited to meet you all (in front of the “wall of honor” memorial located in terminal d, level 2), and I’m looking forward to learning more about y’alls backgrounds and experiences. I’m also hoping to improve my spanish 🤞and grow in empathy and understanding during these three months.

i’m into music (young thug, st motel, lil tecca, bowling for soup), fishing (weird ik), and finding cool places in different cities to bum around.

5 more days!


p.s. I didn’t have a cool photo of me with my arms outstretched in front of a mountain range (ahem, annika, reeve, piper), so hopefully this’ll do
