Hi everyone! My name is Will and I am from Worcester, MA, a city that Boston is about 40 minutes east of. I am finishing up my fake gap year with there be dragons and HMI after doing a program with just HMI last semester in Colorado, Utah, and Patagonia. I’ve already been to one year of college at Oberlin (hence the fake gap year) and am looking forward to getting back into South America and its outdoors while I am free from the shackles of traditional education.
