Hi guys, I’m Yasmine and I’m from Bridgewater, Connecticut, which is a tiny, rural town.  I’m 18 years old and I finished boarding school in May 2019 and then did a program in New York City for the first half of my gap year.  During January I traveled around America a bit, visiting grandparents in Florida, my sister in New Orleans, and my friend in Virginia.  Everywhere I went was awesome but I’m really excited to step out of American culture for a few months and travel somewhere new and interesting before I return and attend college this coming fall.  I love traveling, meeting new people, cooking, playing games, swimming, and taking care of kids and animals.  I’m a bit nervous as I pack and prepare but I’m super excited to get to know all of you and hopefully have an awesome experience with you guys in Indonesia.  See you all soon! 🙂
