Hi everybody! My name is Austin Pan and I’m an incoming senior at Mission San Jose High School in Fremont, California. I’m really excited to go on this trip and experience what life is like in Matagalpa. I’m also planning on strengthening my Spanish there, because even after 2 years of Spanish, I can barely speak the language. This will be the first time I’m going to a country outside of China or Taiwan, so everything will be brand new and exciting to me.  Some things I like to do include reading novels, practicing percussion, hanging out with friends, or just kicking back and enjoying some funny but pointless YouTube videos. I can’t wait to meet all of you guys!
