On this expedition I've learned to actually have confidence and trust myself and be a great leader. I was not afraid to do something wrong. And I also learned to respect nature for what it provides us with. I've learned a lot about the natural world. I've learned to respect it and take care of it. And I also learned a lot about the natural beauties that the natural world has.
I want to dedicate this summit to my sister Maria. Maria was the only one who really encouraged me to go on this awesome adventure. I think her for encouraging me, because I used that encouragement as my strength and that's what got me to where I am, Eagle Peak, and I'm also using that strength to finish this journey. Thank you big sis, Maria.
