Gadi is currently in his second year studying geography and urban planning, but has long been interested in how the world spins. He travels frequently— most recently to the United Nations to deliver a speech on youth engagement in peace-related programming— but enjoys the homeliness of Gainesville. An avid cyclist, he’s done two long(er) distance trips from Incheon to Busan in South Korea on the 4 Rivers trail and from Jacksonville to Miami in Florida down US1 and A1A.
