Our trip really set the course for what I want for the rest of my life. I am currently training and working under an experienced guide and will be taking the SPI exam by the end of the year. I have also been invited and accepted the offer to join an expedition to Ecuador in December. I have also changed my major to geography. These choices have come as a result of the time I had to reflect and the experience I gained through our course. I have my heart set on becoming a guide and have the full support of my family. I just wanted to take a moment to share my appreciation for all your mentoring before and during our expedition.
