I'm a sophomore student at West Virginia University currently pursuing a degree from the Perley Isaac Reed School of Journalism. My family and I have taken multiple roadtrips to many of America's National Parks since I was very young, which has definitiely contributed to my love for outdoor adventure.
This past summer, I took an outdoor leadership course in New Zealand that completely changed my life. Some of our activities included backpacking, ice climbing and cultural education, all having impacted my outlook on life for the better. I believe that some of the most beautiful places in the entire world exist within America's National Parks and can provide experiences and emotion that are truly indescribable.
