I was born in the huge city of Orange, CA but settled in a tiny town in Oregon before my 5th bday. Been here ever since. Formed a dream when I was 4 held on to it until I was 19. I wanted to go to Africa. Then I learned to leave my dreams in God's hands and just do what he wanted me doing in the right now. 3 years later I made it to Africa!
Once I was held as a hostage. I have known 3 murderers in my life thus far. I had 4 marriage proposals by the time I was 18.
Going on a whim one day, I created a facebook page for a missing toddler. That small idea changed my life forever, and inspired the formation of a non profit organization.
I like to dance in the rain but I usually end up falling on my butt. And I like to complain about the rain.
Once I convinced my PE teacher that running was against my religion so I was excused from it for the rest of the year.
In 8th grade my classmates used to call me an idiot because I pronounced island "eye-land", and they insisted it was "is-land". It wasn't until the end of the year when they finally tried to have the teacher tell me, that they found out I was right.
I have traveled to 9 different nations, on 4 different continents. I have climbed a mountain, eaten baked hamster, feasted on frog legs, been on tv, met a senator and a congressman, stood in the crater of a volcano, and have a million funny stories from strange experiences along the way.
Every day is a new adventure. Just wait and see!
