THE CONCEPT OF A GAP YEAR PROGRAM IS STILL NEW FOR MANY STUDENTS. WHEN WERE YOU FIRST INTRODUCED TO THE IDEA OF TAKING A GAP YEAR?

I was first introduced to a gap year around the same time that I was seriously looking at colleges, a little less than a year ago, but I didn’t give it any real thought until recently when I realized that maybe college next year wasn’t for me.winterline, gap year, micah zimmerman

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO TAKE A GAP YEAR?

I couldn’t find something that I really wanted to study and everything about Winterline looked amazing. I wanted to use this year to find out what I liked so that I could narrow down the choices for college.

WHAT SKILL ARE YOU MOST EXCITED TO LEARN?

I am really excited to do the BMW program and to scuba dive.

DO YOU HAVE AN IDEA OF WHAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO DO IN THE FUTURE?

Although I don’t know exactly what I want to do in the future, I would love to work on fixing the environment through renewable energy.winterline, gap year, micah zimmerman

HAVE YOU TRAVELED BEFORE? IF SO, WHICH TRIP HAS BEEN YOUR FAVORITE AND WHY?

I have traveled before, my favorite trip was to Israel because I got to see so many historical things from my religion.

WHAT DO YOU EXPECT TO GAIN FROM YOUR GAP YEAR PROGRAM AND WHILE TRAVELING ABROAD?

Honestly I don’t even know what to expect, but I do hope to learn a lot about myself and what I enjoy doing.winterline, gap year, micah zimmerman

WHAT IS ONE THING YOU WANT YOUR FUTURE WINTERLINE PEERS TO KNOW ABOUT YOU?

I want my future Winterline peers to know that I am always open to be friends and I love to try and learn new things.

TELL US SOMETHING FUN ABOUT YOU!

I am double jointed in my arms (I’ll show you what I mean if you ask)winterline, gap year, micah zimmerman
