Introducing Myself

Hi everyone! My name is Bess, I’m 18 from Albuquerque, New Mexico and I just graduated high school. I have never left the U.S. before but I have been wanting to for years, so I’m incredibly excited about this trip. I love backpacking, hiking, reading, art, snowboarding, and animals (super excited to see some big fuzzy cows and a monkey or two!) I am taking a gap year but I hope to eventually study medicine and international relations.

Looking forward to meeting you all!
