Hey Everyone

Hey everyone, I’m Jamie Hackney and I’m really excited to meet all of you and explore South America. I live outside of Boston and am currently on a gap year. I just got home from a NOLS backcountry ski trip in the Tetons where I was buried in snow for 2 weeks. I like spending time outside, especially doing activities like skiing, mountain biking, hiking, and rock climbing, which I just recently have started doing. I’m looking forward to meeting you all and improving my Spanish, and I can’t wait to get down there, as South America has always been a place I’ve wanted to visit, especially Patagonia.
