I LOVE GirlVentures! I just finished On the Rise and I hope to work as an Assistant Instructor next year. My favorite part was summiting Mt. Langley. It was such an emotional, mental and physical challenge; I almost thought I wasn’t going to make it. It was the greatest feeling in the world to reach the top and look around me – how far I’d gone, how great my accomplishment was, and that I was 14,000 feet in the air! On this course I learned perseverance, strength, compassion, and appreciation for nature and life outside of the city. Most of all, I learned more about myself.
