My Travel Story

by: Sam Lander Start Date: Apr 19, 2016 - End Date: Jan 18, 2017

I'm looking for help to fund a trip to Sweden! I'm going to be going to school at Umea University to study Physiology and Business for a full year! I love the city so much! It's so beautiful and it feels like there's always something cool going on! When I found out I got in my brain exploded with ideas of things I could do while I was there from hiking local mountains to coaching hockey to meeting more of the locals! I've been twice before for Christmas and Midsummers and have fallen in love with the city and the country! I have so many friends there I'd love to be able to see more. 

I'm also hopefully going to be coaching young hockey players at the local pro club! I'm only 19, but already I've worked with some of the top goalies in the world from leagues such as the NHL, AHL, Liiga, SHL, NCAA D1 & D3 and more! The experiance of having a full time job with a team is a dream come true for me and I am beyond excited to even be in the coversation for the opportunity with so many great coaches out there! Hockey is the world to me and getting to work it as a job would mean more than I can explain on here in words.

  • Rewards

    So I can't think of any incentives to add because of the nature of my trip, but I'll just say every penny is greatly appreciated. I'm taking out a loan from the bank regardless, but every dollar I get now is a dollar I don't have to pay back with interest later.
