Hi everyone! My name is Juliana (I go by Juna for short), and I am a rising senior in high school from Denver, CO. I am passionate about visual arts, including painting, sewing, and woodworking. I love music; I have played piano as long as I can remember and am currently learning the guitar. I am also a pretty big history buff and I’m passionate about the environment.

Having grown up in Colorado, I am endlessly in love with the mountains and am incredibly excited to be traveling to the Himalayas. Aside from the mountains, I am drawn to Bhutan because of its cultural preservation despite ever increasing globalization, its unique environmental protection policies and gross national happiness index, and because I otherwise know very little about it. I am looking forward to getting to know everyone over the next month!
