Introduction & Question About Malaria!


My name is Claire and I’m from Portland, Maine, although I go to school outside of Boston, Massachusetts. I’m 17 years old and play basketball and row. I also absolutely love hiking, the outdoors, and plants/gardening!

I am incredibly excited to explore the mountains of India this summer, and to reflect and be meditative. I cannot wait to meet you all! 🙂

Additionally, I have a question regarding malaria. Even though we are traveling in high altitude areas, Delhi is in the malaria zone. What have past students done on this trip regarding malaria medication? Has anyone gotten malaria on this trip in the past? How much time are we spending in malaria zones, and are we at risk of getting malaria? If people have taken the malaria preventative medication, have they experienced side effects that have affected their trip?

Thank you so much!
