"The best part of traveling is the joy of meeting new people and making new friends" - Dustin
Dustin has been privileged enough to travel with his military family starting from an early age. His mother and father married out of high school and joined the Marine Corps. A year later, little Dustin came into the world. After his father retired after serving 25 years, Dustin had lived in 8 states and 3 countries. The excitement for travel has become engrained into his being. After graduating high school, Dustin attended Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University on a Marine Corps ROTC Scholarship. The early years of adulthood showed Dustin that what he wanted out of life was not going to happen on his current life path. Dustin took a break from school and chose to travel to learn more about the world we live in and who he is as a person. His travels led him to the Virgin Islands, south Florida, Central America, and many music festivals and cities across the country.
This summer, Dustin had the opportunity to travel with a Non-profit named One Simple Wish granting wishes to foster children. The Ultimate Wish tour met 75 children in 16 cities and traveled more than 7000 miles. The children not only received a wish, but they were interviewed on camera so they could be highlighted for the rest of the country to meet!
After the tour, Dustin was able to reflect back upon all the wonderful cities and landscapes. He experienced parts of the United States that he had never seen before. We are asking you to help Dustin go back to areas of the US that he experienced while on the Ultimate Wish Tour. Now, at 25, Dustin is ready to take all of his experiences and channel the knowledge into improving his mind, body, and spirit. The constant travel has been exciting, but never living anywhere more than 3 years has created a desire for a home and belonging. Dustin knows, that if he is to be successful, he needs to live in a place that will promote growth and allow him to make the forward progress in life he desires. His current location in Virginia and the East Coast is not conducive to promoting positive growth in his life and as a person.
He wishes to give all money raised past the set goal to One Simple Wish. So not only would your donation go to helping Dustin find a place to grow as a man, but go to making the difference in a child’s life.
If you would like to get to know Dustin better, feel free to conact him.
Thank you so much for you time! Nameste :)
