I think this experience has nourished me by just being outdoors. When I’m at home I don’t spend much time outside. Seeing animals I’ve never seen before and talking to people I don’t usually talk to at school has definitely nourished me.


Getting packed up for adventure.

I have never worked so hard in my life. So I think the rest of this journey will make me appreciate the wildlife. I think I can nourish others by getting to know them, and them getting to know me.

The wilderness is a place where mankind can revisit the past in a way. Because the whole planet used to be wild. So it can remind us how the world used to be. And that’s why it’s important.


A little backcountry hair maintenance.

I would like to be an ambassador for a company that raises money for unprivileged schools. So they can afford books and sports funding.
My audience would be kids and the school board of education. The resources I would need are donations, volunteers, and fundraisers.
