Hi! I’m Alexa, and I’m from NYC. I’m sixteen, and I’ll be turning seventeen about a week after we get back from the trip! I’m incredibly excited to participate in this program; it incorporates so many aspects that I’m interested in Spanish immersion, service, traveling, and outdoor activities.
I’ve never been to Guatemala before, and I feel really lucky to be going on this trip, especially after such a difficult year. A couple of things about me is that I’m an alpine ski racer, I love writing, and I’m really interested in current events, politics and social justice. Travel is one of my favorite things, and it’s usually something I do with my family. So, this experience will be a new one! I also love food, and I’m really looking forward to exploring Guatemalan cuisine.
So excited to meet you all and see you soon!!
