Hi everybody! My name is Elliot and I am a rising senior at SOTA in San Francisco. I love to play, write, create and listen to music as well as draw and do other arts. I also love to play basketball and hang out with my friends. I applied for the trip because I really wanted an opportunity to see new places and different ways of life from mine. I also really love to travel and I hoped applying to this program would give me chances to have exciting new experiences. I am so excited about the trip and what I am most looking forward to is getting to see the nature in the Dominican Republic as well as learn about what life is like in the DR in contrast to in the US
