Hi everyone! My name is Cooper and I’m from Chicago, Illinois. This summer I’ve been busy working at an elementary school and spending time with friends and family. In my free time I enjoy reading, running, and practicing yoga.
I’m super duper excited to trek through the Himalayas and fine-tune my photography skills along the way. Also, my family owns a yoga studio, so both Buddhism and Hinduism have been small but crucial parts of my life. I can’t wait to learn more about Indian/Nepalese philosophy and maybe bring back some useful meditation hacks to share with my family!
When I return from Nepal, I’ll be interning at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory until March. After my internship, I plan on backpacking! I have a trip throughout Japan tentatively planned for March; however, I’m keeping my schedule open for any opportunity that may come my way.
I can’t wait to meet all of you! See ya soon!
