Hello!  I’m Joey West and I’m from Washington DC.  I’m taking a gap year before heading off to Hamilton College next fall.

This seems to be a common theme so far, but I love doing anything in the outdoors, especially rock climbing, backpacking, and rafting.  Other than that, I’m a huge sports nut (I spent most of this summer on a road trip with a few friends traveling around to see a baseball game at every MLB stadium) and I love to play piano.  This spring I’ll be going out to Wyoming to take a Wilderness Medicine and Rescue Semester with NOLS.

I took Chinese in high school and learned very little, but I am really excited to change that over the next three months.

Looking forward to meeting you all soon!
