My mantra is simple: live and love without fear, care for the Earth, and explore. Nature, wilderness and adventure are my life sources, fueling my determination to create positive change in this world. I have had the privilege to roam Canada, the U.S., Central America, Australia and South East Asia seeking out diverse cultures, natural wonders and human connections. With a brief foray into journalism, I am now nearing completion of a degree in Environmental Studies and International Development at the University of Waterloo. During my final academic year in Peru, I hope to foster my understanding of cross cultural cooperation.
