Hi everyone! I’m Sarah, from a suburb of Boston. I fell in love with Dragons two years ago after spending 6 weeks in Guatemala on the Spanish intensive program. During my senior year of high school I was an Alumni Ambassador for Dragons, so naturally another Dragons course had to be worked into my gap year.

I’ve known a gap year was in my future for as long as I can remember. I graduated high school in June, deferred my admission to Emory University, and headed to an island in Nicaragua, where I spent nearly 4 months as a medicinal plant intern on a permaculture farm.

So excited to meet you all in a few days!
