Deep in the Amazon, under the canopy of leaves and primates, attempting to stop deforestation; perhaps in the Great Karoo of South Africa, trekking through the desert to deliver much needed HIV vaccines, or even in the violent, poverty-ridden streets of El Salvador administering first aid to children injured by gang-related crimes. That’s where you could find me, making a living doing my three favorite things: exploring, learning, and helping.
Exploring incredible rainforests, jungles, and deserts; places with such beauty I can’t even begin to imagine. Trudging through swamps and rivers or hiking across mountain ranges to get to tribes isolated from modern society. Traveling all over the world from Malaysia to Belize to Zimbabwe to Azerbaijan and every place in between, living a life full of adventure and fascination!
Learning the traditions and customs of cultures I never knew existed, the languages of those native to every land, the local flora and fauna, and any other minute detail that I can commit to memory. Every moment I will cherish and every second will be a realization of all the wonders that this world, and its people, possess.
Helping as many people as possible; dedicating every single day I wake to the needs of others from poverty to ailments. Just hoping and trying to make positive changes in the life of every person I encounter; traveling to the bleakest places to bring light, hope, and new possibilities. If I could spend my life doing anything, it would be this.
