Hello! My name is Jamie Maddox. I am 18 years old and from Prairie Village, Kansas, a suburb right outside of Kansas City, Missouri. For the next four and a half months, I will be living in Vina Del Mar, Chile! I just moved into my host home hours ago and cannot wait to start the semester. In May I graduated from Shawnee Mission East High School and before attending the University of Kansas in the fall of 2015, I wanted to get out of Kansas and travel the world! Some of my interests include; sports, reading, baking, and spending time with friends and family. Though is was hard to say goodbye, I’m excited to meet new people and learn more about South American culture here in Chile. I look forward to sharing all of my, what I’m sure will be amazing, experiences with you!
