My name is Andrew Godbout. I’m 19 years old, and I am currently taking a year off from the University of Vermont, where I was a freshman last year. I decided to take a year off to make some money and discover myself. I have spent the past 3 months sweating in a kitchen and making that dough. Now it’s time for me to escape to the desert and learn about and help preserve a completely different ecosystem from that in Mid-coast Maine. I have been outside my whole life, be it mountain biking in the fall, skiing in the winter, lacrosse in the spring, or sailing in the summer. I am super excited to meet the Wildcorps IX crew and share the next 7 months with them.
