“This trip has honestly taught me so much. I started the trip surrounded by people I didn’t know and ended with close friends whose friendships I will cherish for the rest of my life. I learned that being out of my comfort zone was okay because it allowed me to be vulnerable. Being vulnerable allowed me to learn and to grow.”

-Samara Mejia, June 2019 backpacking trip participant
