The opportunities in this trip are truly life changing. If you watch the videos linked to this, it will show you just a glimpse of all the incredible things that I can grow from and seek new paths with. I am more excited than ever to have discovered such a grand opportunity that will not just change my life but possibly the way I percieve the world and think entirely.
This trip that literally goes all the way around the world is a spectacular experiance and I am so happy to have the opportunity to take part in this! With your support I will be able to make this one of the most memmorable experiances in my life! 
I am so passionate about joining this and having this opportunity for so many reasons. One of the first ones that comes to mind is how badly I want to see myself grow in all the ways presented by this trip, mentally, emotionally, spiritually and possibly even physically! I am excited to step out and see the world, but not just see it, experiance it! I am no longer the tourist, I am someone immersing myself into a new culture and new piece of the world!
This is truely something I am passionate beyond compare about and would love to take part in.

  • What Will I Be Doing?

    What will I be doing?
    On this trip I will visit 10 countries; Belize, Costa Rica, Cambodia, India, Thailand, Italy, Czechia, Germany, Austria and of course it starts right here in the United States! While on this 9-month long trip I will learn a total of at least 195 new skills ranging from safe-driving skills taught by BMW in Germany, Glass Blowing in Thailand, Scuba Diving in Costa Rica and film/animation in India. I will also learn independent world travel, interpersonal communication, teamwork, first aid and survival.

    The last week of the trip I even get to pick a country in Europe to go to independently!!! This trip will be a HUGE learning experience before heading off to college the following fall. Updates on my payment deadlines are outlined in updates below. Please donate! Everything is a huge help. Thank you for your support. Watch the videos above for even more information!
