Hi, I’m Cori.

From a young age I have loved making art, and learning languages. I have enjoyed exploring politics and social justice, and I love  playing ultimate frisbee and soccer.

I have always sought to push myself out of my comfort zone. From leaving my home and my family for a year abroad in Costa Rica at age 14, to my latest adventure: The High Desert Center gap year in Paonia, Colorado.

Here we will be learning about sustainable agriculture, practicing Spanish, backpacking through mountains and canyons, and traveling around Mexico and the deserts of the Southwest.
