Introduction – Ava Frankel

Hi everyone, my name is Ava Frankel, I live in Greenwich, Connecticut, and I go to Riverdale Country School. I’m fifteen years old and I’m a rising sophomore.  I enjoy playing soccer, dancing, and taking trips to New York City. Additionally I love music, the artists I listen vary but I really love Flume. My favorite subjects are Math and Science and I am a member of the debate team and the human rights club.

I love to travel and am so excited to go on this trip. While I may not be particularly good at it, I love hiking and am really looking forward to trekking and getting to see the mountain ranges and natural landscapes. I am also very excited about the homestays and learning more about Bhutanese culture. I have been looking forward to this trip for months now, and am beyond thrilled to travel and meet all of you.
