Hi! I’m Nell, I’m from San Juan Capistrano, CA and I turn 20 on Feb 7th, the day we leave! I’ve moved a lot, so I’m also from Colorado and the Washington DC area. I was at Tufts University in Boston, before I decided to take a gap year. I have done a few trips like this one in previous years, but three months will be the longest time I will have spent overseas. I am most excited about the ecological components of the trip, because I don’t know much about conservation, and I always love to learn new things. I’m pretty spontaneous (I joined this trip only a few weeks ago), so I’m always game for any surprise activities or interests.
