Hello everyone, my name is Griffin Adelmann and I am a student at Northampton High School in western Mass. I have always been interested in travel and seeing the world. A few hobbies I have at home are, playing music, lifting weights, and most computer-related things. I haven’t been able to travel as much as I wanted but this program was an amazing opportunity that I could not pass up.

I applied to this program because I thought it would be a wonderful way to experience and interact with parts of the world that I couldn’t normally. I wanted to do the program because in addition to being a great learning experience, I would be able to help a local community as well.
