To New Adventures!
For many, it's a narcissist's dream to climb a high-altitude peak in the Himalayas, specifically in the Khumbu Region of Nepal. But for me, it's a matter of personal development.

In the near future, I intend to start an adventure tour business that will help others experience the outdoors. My inspiration comes from the idea that stressed, depressed, and anxious people can have a life-changing experience in the mountains.

If I climb Imja Tse, then I'd be able to serve as a model for people who want to go outdoors with my future company. Wouldn't that be wonderful?

To Help Those in Desperate Need
It's cliche to do volunteer work in Nepal, but I can always find time to do so, as I join an expedition.

Another thing, part of the money I raise will be donated to relief efforts in the earthquake-stricken areas of Ormoc City, where communities near Tongonan and Lake Danao have been severely affected.

I've been to Lake Danao and the nearby Alto Peak, so I hold the communities there dear.

Lastly, of course, I want to help those suffering from depression and anxiety. I've always believed in the practical approach to mental health. On the other hand, I also believe in the holistic approach, which involves making others see how beautiful the world is.

I want to help those who are lost and strungout see the beauty of the mountains.

To Fullfill One's Passion
Being in the mountains helped be conquer depression. With my future guiding company, I want to reach out to those who want to get outside, but just don't know where to start.

I also want to develop myself into being a serious mountaineer—to climb higher, bigger, and more difficult mountains as I go along my way.

Climbing Imja Tse would be a great way for me to transition from plain old mountain hiking and rock climbing to alpinism and alpine mountaineering.

Nepal: Because Why Not?
We all know that the Himalayan mountain range boasts glorious peaks and majestic landscapes. It's in close proximity to where I currently am and it's cheaper for me to travel to Nepal than anywhere else.

Who wouldn't want to take the opportunity to go climbing in Nepal? Imagine what it would be like to be relatively close to the Himalayas!

To Give Others Meaning
It will not only be meaningful to me, but to others as well. Not only will this expedition kickstart my "career" in alpine mountaineering—it will also help me start the guiding company I've been talking about.

The main goal of my future guiding company is to grant people the experience they will never forget. And that, to me, is enough to give their lives meaning.

So, why don't you help me climb Imja Tse? Support my campaign and aid me in fulfilling my dream!
