Hello everyone! My name is Sydney Kramer and I was born and raised in Bothell, Washington. July 9th I will take off on the journey of a lifetime to Costa Rica!

Among many things about this trip I’m anxious for, seeing the world from brand new angle is possibly number one on the list. Armed with my camera, I am eager to capture the landscape, the people, and the stories I will soon come across. I have lived in the same stereo typical and overcast suburbia for my entire life. Never before have I had the chance to go out and explore the world and appreciate another way of life like this!

Tied for first on the list, though, is the chance to improve the lives of the people I’ll meet. I am always thrilled to be able to make even the smallest difference. This trip will be the jumpstart to a life time of traveling and making a difference in the world and I will never be able to fully express my gratitude to the Wandering Scholar for giving me this opportunity!
