Olá! My name is Kennedy Lollis. I am 17 years old, and a senior at Woodward Academy high school. I’m ecstatic to say that I will be living in Brazil for a whole year after I graduate!! I was born in San Diego, California, moved to Dallas, Texas when I was 8, and then moved to Atlanta when I was 11, where I have since lived. I live with my mom, dad, and younger sister. I have an older brother who attends Arizona State University. Living in diverse cities all of my life, and constantly moving around, I’ve grown a love and appreciation for cultures and learning languages. I speak English, a little Spanish, and can’t wait to become fluent in Portuguese! I hope to be a polyglot one day. In school, I’m involved in student government, Model UN, National Honor Society, and other organizations. I am also on the lacrosse team. I value spending time with my family and friends a lot, especially traveling and exploring. I love creating special connections with people, and I can’t wait to grow a bond with my new family and friends in Brazil. I enjoy reading, swimming, and hanging out with my friends, but my greatest passion is traveling. I can’t wait for this year abroad to bring me new challenges and experiences, a whole new language, and unforgettable memories. Tcahu!
