I'm from Central New York (CNY), and after graduating from high school in 2010, I took a gap year in Wrocław, Poland, where I lived as an exchange student through the Rotary Exchange Program. I decided to go on exchange after high school because I love to travel, and because I knew a gap year would help me grow as a person and gain a perspective other than what I have known as a kid from CNY.
I love to ski and was a ski racer throughout my childhood (and then some). I also love to hike, sail, run, swim, walk, talk, eat, breathe, read, etc. This semester I'm trying my hand at courses in biology, chemistry and economics. I'm also participating in the Wilderness Instructor Training Program, I'm on the e-board of Common Ground, a class of 2015 Honors Board representative, a member of the Orientation Board, and I will be participating in a MOVE extended service trip to Long Island later this semester. I also love being involved with the college radio station, WWPV, and Green Up, the sustainability club on campus. We've done awesome stuff, such as removing the sale of bottled water from campus, and every year we host Harvest Fest in the fall and Earthfest in the spring.
I would be happy to answer any questions you might have via Twitter or Formspring! Or if you would prefer to send me an Email (email@example.com) with any questions or suggestions that's fine as well!
Thanks for reading!
