Hi everyone. I am Masa Shiiki. I am a rising senior at Horace Mann High school. My hobbies include running, playing and watching basketball, and also cooking. My previous travel experiences include traveling to Japan over the summer to visit my relatives and some other trips including a middle school trip to Costa Rica. I am looking forward to this trip because I really want to get to know more people and build a stronger connection with people I have never been exposed to in the past. I am really excited to get to learn more about Panamanian culture and customs as well.
