Hey everyone!

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!
