About Jennifer

I’m Jennifer, and I just graduated from Groton-Dunstable Regional High School. I love learning (although I’m often not that crazy about going to school) and am especially interested in English, history, art, and foreign language. I am thrilled to be able to take this trip around the world even if it means starting college a year later than all of my friends; it’s worth postponing college by a year to be able to see so much and help so many people.

Of course, there are people who are hard to leave behind. But I’m looking forward to our adventure. I’m reassuring myself that the people I love will still be there for me when I get back, and am getting ready to experience things that are brand new to me.

The First Rule of Travel: Go for it!
