My name is Mary Larcom. I am seventeen years old and live in East Greenwich, Rhode Island. I go to the Lincoln School in Providence where I will be entering the twelfth grade in the fall. I love both math and science courses and hope to combine these two and study biomedical engineering in college. I grew up with two older brothers and have always participated in high adventure outdoor actives like white water rafting, camping, and hiking. I also love photography, both film and digital. I am excited to be able to combine my love for photography and nature while on this trip. I believe this will be the adventure of a lifetime and am very excited to explore and learn about the arctic, it’s environment and animals.
