Hey everyone!

My name’s Bella and I live in Sacramento, California.  I graduated from Mira Loma High School and am taking a gap year before heading off to college.  (Still working on exactly where, but I plan to major in environmental sciences.)  At school, I was a part of both our recycling club and national art honors society, which I feel represents my interests pretty well.  The majority of this past summer I spent working in the kitchen and office of a music camp that I attended as a camper for many years and always loved.

For my ISP, I am interested in learning some sort of craft or maybe even cooking – a skill I can take back home with me!  I’m also really excited to learn the language and get to know more about the different ecosystems we will be visiting.  I can’t wait to meet everyone and get started on this next adventure!

See you guys soon,
