I'm running for Hostelling International because travel has played an enormous role in my life. Without my year in China, time in Thailand, or experiences trekking around California, I would not have the same wonderful friends, views, opinions, or adventurous spirit. Travel is inspiring, thought-provoking, and (in my opinion) extremely important. Nothing teaches you more about yourself or the world as getting out of your comfort zone, taking risks, and trying new things. As a high school teacher and coach, I hope to inspire my kids to explore their interests and learn as much as possible about the world. I also hope to promote healthy habits, challenging limits, and trying things never thought possible.
Thank you all in advance for your help, support, and kind endorsements!
