Graham is passionate about learning, adventure, human rights, and issues of equality. He learned Spanish in school and aims to become trilingual by adding Portugués to his repertoire. He enjoyed growing up in Minnesota but is looking forward to experiencing a new lifestyle and culture in Brazil. A fanatical soccer player and snowboarder, Graham can’t wait to play with the locals and surf some waves. A few of his goals this year are to gain fluency in Portuguese, develop close friendships in Brazil, and better understand the issues of the world. After his GCY bridge year, Graham will pursue international business at the University of Denver.
