Hi from Alexis
Hi, I’m Alexis! I’m from Great Falls, Virginia, but I usually tell everyone I’m from DC because it’s easier. I went to high school in DC (just graduated!), and I live about 30 min-1 hour away (depending on traffic, which, in Northern Virginia, can be absolutely horrific).
I am taking a gap year before heading off to college in fall 2008 (it was a last-minute type thing). Despite the last-minute-ness of my decision, however, I am so excited for my gap year—a whole year to do whatever I want! I can’t wait!
This summer, I’ve been hanging out with friends a lot, swimming, reading, waitressing at a country club (fun but a bit boring/overwhelming, depending on the time of day), and teaching at a math camp (I feel bad for those kids that have to go to math camp over the summer!).
I’m always willing to explore new places and meet new people. Other than that, I don’t really know how to describe myself…I guess you all will have to figure it out for yourselves.
I’m so excited to meet all of you and to have an amazing three months in Morocco.
