Introduction – Matthew Akin

Hello everyone! My name is Matthew Akin and I am a rising senior. I have lived in California, Texas, and North Carolina which is where I currently attend high school. The things that I am most interested in are soccer, lacrosse, photography, and world travel. In addition, I am very interested in learning more about the environment and conservation in Bhutan.

I have traveled to many places in the world thus far including South Africa, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, England, and Spain. All of these have been very impactful for me and my life and I am extremely excited to see what this trip to Bhutan will add. I am very eager to get going on this adventure and meet so many great people along the way! I can’t wait to get to know all of you over this next month and I know we will all have a great experience.
