I think back to September 21st, the day I met my host mom, Maria. I remember she greeted me with the biggest hug, the kind that you can still feel even after a few minutes, and a smile from cheekto cheek. She immediately told me, My name is Maria

About Bailey Bullock
Bailey is passionate about playing soccer, being outdoors, and spending time with her friends and family. During the summer of 2013, she went on a NOLS expedition in British Columbia where she sailed and sea kayaked for 31 days. This experienced sparked her desire to travel and to step outside of her comfort zone. Bailey spends her time playing soccer and working at the US National Whitewater Center. Next year she hopes to become fluent in Spanish, explore the healthcare field, and indulge in the Ecuadorian cuisine. Her favorite quote comes from Finding Nemo when Dory says, "When life gets you down you know what you have to do? Just keep swimming," because it inspires her to persevere in all situations.
