My name is Jamie and I am from Buffalo, NY. Last summer I went on a cross-country tour with Bike & Build, a non-profit raising awareness for affordable housing. That experience made me realize how much I love bike touring; riding my bike, meeting new people, and seeing new places is my favorite way to spend the summer. I am really excited to have the opportunity to join the Teen Treks team.
Aside from biking, I like to sail, roller skate, and practice yoga. I am currently going to school for Urban Planning and Environmental Science and I hope to get involved in the non-profit sector after I graduate. On campus, I am part of a bike organization focused on building community through weekly group rides and workshops. I am passionate about creating a culture around biking that is empowering and inclusive – I’ve found getting involved with communities is a great way to fulfill that.
I am looking forward to meeting you all and creating more memories on the road this summer.
