My name is Trevor Aufderheide and I'm a rising senior at the University of Iowa, majoring in Communication Studies and Political Science. I am also an active member of the A. Craig Baird Debate Forum, which is the University's intercollegiate debate team. As a competitor, I spend a lot of time researching and discussing various issues and global problems. However, I've always wanted an opportunity in which I could translate that advocacy into action. I'm thrilled to finally accomplish this objective through Peak 4 Poverty. This trip is the ultimate double whammy: I get to assist needy communities AND climb the wild beast that is Kilimanjaro. Helping those in need while embracing my love of the outdoors and adventure is about as much personal fulfillment as I could ever ask for. PS - R. Kelly is a musical genius.
