Nic Freschi, who graduated Verona High School with the Class of 2011, has arrived in Quito, Ecuador to begun his gap year program with Global Citizen Year. In his first blog post, he talks about the sense of fellowship that he has already developed with other Global Citizen Year participants:

Now, as I look out of my sixth story apartment window at a beautiful view of Quito, I do not feel like home is thousands of miles away. Home will be there for me tomorrow when I arrive for my Ecuadorian culture classes at the university. And home will be a bus ride away when I am living in a rural village in Ibabura next month. And home will be in San Fransisco, Charlotte, Newark, Boston, Atlanta, Nashville, somewhere in almost any state I can think of, once I return to America.

You can read the full post, and follow Nic’s year, here.
