After a life-changing experience thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail in 2018, I am thirsty for another major adventure. Though I went out expecting many solitary encounters with the wilderness in its most natural state, I instead found myself surrounded by fascinating vulnerable people from all walks of life. My hike turned out to be an exhilerating way to meet people in their most natural and genuine states, people with incredible stories and backgrounds setting out on a pursuit much like my own. I loved learning about people in such a way, and I hope that my future hikes continue to provide me with similar opportunities. Along my path, I hope to serve a greater purpose than just my own well-being, and that's why I am teaming up with Hike for Mental Health. Mental Illness and issues with overall mental well-being have plagued so many loved ones in my life, across friendships, relationships, and family members. It is my hope to combine my passions of adventuring and genuinely helping people: I am aspiring to raise a dollar for every mile that I hike on this journey to go towards benefiting mental health.
