My name is Christopher Mark Otten. I am eighteen years old and I’m from Hudson Wisconsin. I just recently graduated form high school and now I am working for the Student Conservation Association in George Washington and Jefferson National Forests in Virginia. During my junior year in high school I spent a year abroad in Portoviejo Manabi Ecuador. During my year I discovered my love of travel and when I got back to the United States I started to look for more options to travel and explore. I really like spending time outside, rock climbing and kayaking so the SCA was a good fit combining being outside, work, and adventure.
