Hello! I am Marilyn and this is a picture of me and my beautiful mother haha. I am from Oakland, I’m sixteen years old, I attend Oakland School for the Arts, and I am ecstatic to be traveling to Panama with you all this summer! This will only be my second time leaving the country so it will be a very new experience for me. It is my dream to travel the world so it’s astonishing to see it finally coming true. My main interests include listening to and creating music, plants, daydreaming, and spending time with loved ones. Music is the sole focus of my life and I can’t really live without it, I even bought a walkman for the trip to play cassettes on haha. Adding on to that, I really hope Panama helps me connect more to nature and the outdoors which is something I have been trying to encourage myself to do more often. I am anxious to see the effect that going a full two weeks without any technology with have on me! I’m not sure what else to say about myself other than that I am excited to see you all July 30th at 2 in the morning lol.
