My name is Lindsey Schweitzer. I am 16 and I am going into my junior year at Friends’ Central School in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In school I lead the sustainability club and debate club and am currently a member of my school’s math club and science core team. I play lacrosse and field hockey and participate in my school’s orchestra and jazz band on the violin. In my free time I like to read, go on runs, and hang out with my three sisters.

I have studied Spanish for two years at my school and I am really excited to get the opportunity to be able to be immersed in a different language and culture. I love to travel and create new experiences and I think this trip is an amazing opportunity for me to improve my language skills and learn about Guatemalan culture. I am most excited to learn about sustainability while in Guatemala and experience a new way of life. In the video, I was most surprised and impressed by the ability of one of the students, who looked quite young, to rap and hold such an incredible beat.

Can’t want to meet everyone soon!
