Hi! My name is London Treece. I am 19 years old and come from Washington DC, USA. I’ve always really enjoyed organizing and joining in events. Coming to APU I was really excited to experience the multicultural weeks because they always had so many fun activities and a lot of food to offer. I had always wanted to lead a big event and (this is where the cheesy part comes), one day I woke up from a dream about organizing the very first American week at APU. It was so vivid and detailed that I knew I had to put it together some how. So I wrote my ideas and met with my 4th year senpai Ian, and boom. The eagle took flight. From there on we’ve had our ups and downs, experienced more stress than predicted. But now 2 weeks away from the show we are now in full bloom confidence that this week will be one of the most fun weeks here at APU. Make sure to stay tuned for all of the fun events we have in store, and don’t forget to buy a candy cane to send to your friend, lover, or teacher for the holidays!
