Hendricks is from Boston, USA and is between his 3rd and 4th years of college.
Having studied a variety of things from clinical psychology to marine ecology and sustainability, he has come to realise that whilst he is grateful for his education, he is his best self outside of a traditional education setting. This led him to study abroad for a year in the Bahamas during his junior year at high school.
“It was one of the most influential experiences I have had in my life. I was coming from an all boys, competitive environment where we wore suits and ties every day. I didn’t realize how rigid it felt until I had a chance to get away from it. I was excited to go experience a new climate, both socially and environmentally. The Island school was a complete lifestyle change, from the very beginning”.
With a passion for deep conversation and the arts, he has been working on his poetry and creating content for his YouTube channel since joining our Bali program. He also spends his time here, meditating, reflecting to build a better sense of self and understanding of this new world he finds himself immersed in on Bali.
A fun fact about Hendricks: He is an amazing dancer, who is able to express through his body, what he feels his mind cannot. You will often find Hendricks busting a move by the pool when a good tune comes on, and on the odd occasion, centre stage at the local bar!
