Hey guys! My name is Vivien Trinh and I’m an incoming senior at Independence. I’m heading off to Esteli on June 4th, which will mark the day that I will have traveled out of the country for the FIRST TIME EVER, and my first time in twelve years on a plane/out of state. I honestly have no clue what to expect–it hasn’t hit me yet that I’m going to a completely different nation in a matter of 2 weeks O_O nonetheless, I can’t wait to meet you all ^_^

I swim, do color/winter guard (you know, those flags/”guns”/”swords” dancing?), bake, dance, play piano, and I really really love cats. I have 4 and I hope I won’t have more. I go pretty wild for anti-human trafficking efforts; I’ve started up my own club at school and I hope to build my leadership a billion miles from home so I can bring back my learned skills to the club! I also bake a lottt of cookies for anti-trafficking, and have raised over $1000 in the past 2 years.. yes, in cookies.
ANYWAY. I’m really excited for the trip and to meet and make a lot of new friends. c:
