In March I will be setting out to hike from Georgia to Maine, over 2,000 miles,by myself, with little backpacking experience. I am doing this firstly because it is my dream to complete the Appalachian Trail and secondly to raise money and awareness for female empowerment! I want to live in a world where women, are strong, confident and full to the brim of self-acceptance. I believe this starts with empowering our youth and that is why I am raising money for SheLift. From the SheLift website: SheLift brings girls of all ages and body types together to inspire and motivate one another to try things we never thought we could do by ourselves. Our events aim to provide healing and prevention of insecurities for girls who've been made to feel "different." My goal is to raise $1 for each mile of the rail but also to inspire other girls and women to go after their own dreams! Any amount donated is greatly appreciated, thank you so much for your support!
