What’s up everyone

Hi everybody, my name is Samuel and I’m from Berkeley, California. I’ve lived here my whole life with my mom and dad, older brother and younger sister. I love exploring this state, and fishing in the Sierra Nevada or Trinity Alps region is probably my favorite outdoor activity. I’m very excited to be taking a gap year, I have to say I don’t really know any Spanish, but I hope to be able to hold some basic conversations by the time we leave. I want to study Environmental Studies in college so I am especially looking forward to the learning we’ll be doing in that area while we’re in Bolivia and Peru. I can’t wait to meet you all and start this incredible program!
