I’m Kelsey. I’m 18 years old and I graduated from Phillips Academy in Andover, MA this year. I’ll be spending the next eight months traveling with Thinking Beyond Borders, an academic and service learning gap year program that will take me to seven countries. So join me as I learn to surf in Costa Rica, create new forests in Ecuador, hike the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu in Peru, celebrate a Cambodian Christmas, farm in rural India, visit the Taj Mahal, treat HIV/AIDS sufferers in South Africa, and go on a real African safari…just to name a few of my adventures. So stay tuned – it’s going to be an exciting year!
