Hi! My name is Jack James, I am 18 years old and I come from Winnetka, Illinois, which is a small town on Lake Michigan just thirty minutes north of Chicago. I graduated from high school last spring and have been on a gap year since August. I spent three months in Tanzania, East Africa this (last) fall with NOLS, which was truly an amazing experience. I am really looking forward to this semester with you guys and WTBD’s as a chance to continue all the learning and growing I did in Africa. Peru and Bolivia look and sound amazing!! See you guys soon!
