    Say, 'Yes' to life. That's my motto. The experiences, people, and places we dwell make-up who we are. If it scares you it's probably worth doing. There are no right or wrong decisions, there is simply one which is our own. Believe in what you want and go out there and make it happen!

Say, 'Yes' to life. That's my motto. The experiences, people, and places we dwell make-up who we are. If it scares you it's probably worth doing. There are no right or wrong decisions, there is simply one which is our own. Believe in what you want and go out there and make it happen!

Best Experience I've had:

It's hard to name one experience the best, but I would say in terms of adventures, it's when I traveled to Italy right after I graduated college. I was by myself; without a phone, computer, or iPod, just trying to absorb every new thing I was exposed to. I did a lot of growing up on that trip, and look back on it with some difficult and some incredible memories that I hope never to forget.

What Basecamp is about:

Basecamp is about opening your heart, mind, and soul to those around you and the culture that you're exploring. It's about trying to understand a world that is different from your own and learning something new to share when you get back.

What people may not know about me:

My nickname is mouse and ironically I love cheese. I am the only one out of my three siblings who is covered with freckles. I'm left handed. I love peppermint ice cream at Christmas time. I love to sing and secretly wish I was a professional musician. I'm a libra. I said I was going to be an Olympian when I was 10 years-old and it came true at 23.
