¡Hola a todos! No podría estar más emocionada por nuestro aventura. (And thank you, Sophie, for starting us off with the posts!)
My name is Adella y tengo veinte años. I’m from the Los Angeles area and I just finished up my sophomore year of college at American University in Washington, D.C. I’m studying International Relations with a focus in development and Latin America. More generally about me, I l0ve to read, learn, write poetry, explore music, paint, spend time with the trees, move my body, and connect deeply with people! I am so excited to take this trip not only because it encompasses a plethora of my interests from Spanish to indigenous studies to embracing the outdoors, but also because my body and mind have been craving adventure. If the pandemic has done anything to me it has made me yearn to GO to LEARN and to DO. Though I’m nervous about this trip but it is the kind of nervousness that makes me sure I will return home with a new understanding of myself and mi lugar en nuestro mundo.
I am so looking forward to meeting and bonding with you all. I see this trip as such a special and significant part of my future and I hope you all feel the same way! (And my picture is classic shot of me soakin’ up la tierra hehe 🙂 )
¡Nos vemos muy pronto y realmente, no puedo esperar!
