Why did you choose to take part in an expedition with the foundation?

To have an experience that I’ve never had before and to push myself out of my comfort zone.

What were you fears or doubts before you jumped into the adventure?

I had never been real camping before, so I was super scared of being cold, the bathroom situation, falling in the water… just about everything!

What memories and benefits did you bring back home?

I want to be able to reflect back on all the wild stuff we did, how I was simultaneously terrified and excited, and how I met some amazing people who I’m still in touch with today. Plus, now I love camping!
