Hello everyone,

My name is Lesley Carranza and I am from Boston, Massachusetts. I am 17 years old, and go to Boston Latin Academy where I am the cheerleading captain for the upcoming 2019 season. I was born and have been raised in Boston, but my family is from the beautiful country of El Salvador. A little bit about me is that I am fluent in Spanish and have taken four years of Arabic at my school. In my free time, I enjoy listening to music, reading, and exploring new places. I love traveling, and I have been to El Salvador, Belize, Portugal, Spain, The Grand Cayman Islands, Isla Roatan, Cozumel and numerous states around the United States. I am a part of a program called Summer Search, and through them, I have been given the opportunity to go to Panama with all of you. I am excited about our trip and can not wait to gain so much from it.
